The Novedge Team goes on a field trip to the Autodesk Pier 9 Workshop. These are just few of our favorite things (in no particular order).Lundberg Design - Autodesk 01 - Ryan Hughes

1) The Manhattan ProjectIMG_1044

This cocktail machine,  engineered, prototyped and entirely built at Pier 9, mixes a perfect Manhattan.  After 5 pm only.

2) The Hoverboard

It's 2015 and Autodesk delivers the first Hoverboard (all according to Back to the Future 2 plan). Just remember:  Hoverboard first , Manhattan Project after; never the other way around.

In their state-of-the-art digital fabrication workshop, a community of technical experts and creative partners collaborate on projects that dissolve the boundaries between software and hardware.
