Tinkerer Jonathan Zufi talks about design and Escape From New York

John Biggs

This week on Technotopia I talked to Jonathan Zufi, creator of the LifeClock One, a replica of the watch worn by Snake Plissken in Escape From New York. Zufi loves design and his insight on what makes something a timeless classic - even when it comes to computer hardware - is fascinating.

Zufi is also the author of Iconic, a book that details Apple products from the earliest days to the latest models. It's a beautiful book and the photos are amazing. It's well worth a read if you're into design, hardware, or Apple.
