The Apple Cafe

Back in November 1996, just before Steve Jobs returned to his co funded company, Apple was planning in a direction very different from the Apple Store that we see today.The cocept was known as the Apple Cafe- a state of the art cyber cafes with health concious quality food on the cards for the users.It also promised facilities like Video Conferencing with other Diners, on Demand Movie Access and other feature that we see in today’s world.

Possible locations were supposed to include London, Paris, New York, Tokyo, and Sydney, Australia, among others. Apple was teaming up with Landmark Entertainment Group, Mega Bytes International, and the Artists Rights Foundation to make the announcement.

Sadly Apple was in very poor financial condition at that time and thus the project was quietly shelved.

The following images are the rendered ideas for the Apple Cafe by the actual project designers.

Touch n Paint

Brushes is a natural media painting application designed from scratch for the iPhone and iPod touch. Featuring an advanced color picker, several realistic brushes, extreme zooming, and a simple yet deep interface, it is a powerful tool for creating original artwork on your mobile device.

Brushes allows you to choose any color (including transparency) using the hue/saturation color wheel. With virtually unlimited undo and redo you never need to worry about making a mistake or backing up too far.

Starting in version 1.1, Brushes records all of your actions when painting. These actions are stored in a .brushes file which you can download directly from your iPhone or iPod touch via Brushes’ built-in web server.

You can open your .brushes paintings in Brushes Viewer, a free application for Mac OS X. Brushes Viewer allows you to replay your paintings stroke for stroke, export them at very high resolutions (up to 1920 x 2880), and even export them as QuickTime movies.
