    Let It Grow!

    Posted by: Tom Galbraith under Culture

    Sick and tired of feeling bald faced, or like a bearded hippie? Come join us in celebrating Movember. Everyone knows that November is Mustache appreciation/awareness month, but who really does anything about it?

    Astro. That’s who. Even though there are possibly more mustaches on Earth than there have ever been, we salute this flaunting. Mustaches are nothing more than facial hair pennants, flapping in the wind, but they also serve as a personal man-ifestation of one’s confidence, self-worth, and accomplishment. Please check out the following events, (check venue websites for accurate times and pricings,) and occupy your face with a handsome soup strainer.

    Shining a brighter light into the home theater spectrum, Nvidia just released their Astro designed 3D Vision 2 glasses. Specifically designed for gamers and 3D enthusiasts, the new glasses are more refined than past generations of 3D wearables. They come complete with new features that enhance the kinetic experience of 3D video games, photos and movies. Plus they just look cooler.

    Made of more face friendly composite materials, the 3DV2s offer a cozier fit that allow the user to prolong their viewing time in ultra-comfort. The lenses are twenty percent larger than those in the first-generation glasses, offering an expanded viewing area and increased external light blockage for a fully immersed 3D experience.
    In addition, 3D Vision 2 glasses are fully compatible with all existing 3D Vision Ready content and supporting products, including more than 70 different 3D Vision monitors, notebooks and projectors, video applications, and cameras. As if life wasn’t 3D enough, ASTRO and Nvidia are closing the gap between virtual and reality with every collaboration.

    The State of American Design

    Posted by: Tom Galbraith under Culture

    Every fall the trees lose their leaves, the days get shorter, and the minds of today's top designers get together for a festive think tank called the Masters of Design. Authored by Fast Company Magazine, MOD pulls together a motley crew of design thinkers for some serious chin scratching and commentary. For the third year in a row, Brett Lovelady, our very own design master and FastCo expert blogger, has been invited to participate and share his thoughts, hopes and dreams regarding this year's theme: The state of American Design. ASTRO is proud to partner up year after year with Fast Company and here’s to another year of fine reading and design+business blogging with the FastCo crew. And if you want to sample some of ASTRO’s “American as apple pie” Design ....click on this blue plate special we call ASTROphysics.

    Castles Made Of Sand

    Posted by: Norio under Culture, Studio

    This past weekend hundreds of children and their families joined the design and building communities to participate in Leap’s 28th annual Sandcastle Contest. Leap is a wonderful non-profit organization formed in 1979 to help provide top quality arts education programs in public schools. Astro firmly believes in the positive effect arts have on the youth of today, so we made a monetary donation and joined in on the fun. It doesn’t take much to get us out to Ocean Beach on a beautiful day, but getting our hands sandy with the kids was a blast. We can't wait for next year!
