100th Anniversary of Relativity

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, which was originally published in 1916, the Albert Einstein Foundation has created a 3D printed book in the shape of the Nobel Prize’s winner’s recognizable face. The impressive 3D printed book, called Genius: 100 Visions of the Future, was designed by Israeli artist and architect Ron Arad and was conceived of by the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Not only does it resemble the German-born physicist (with his bushy moustache), but its pages contain thoughts about the future and our world written by one-hundred “leading influencers, thinkers, artists, and scientists” from our time.

As mentioned, the 3D printed book is designed by globally renowned Israeli artist Ron Arad, who we’ve paid particular attention to in the past for his amazing 3D printed sunglasses. Arad said he was inspired by Einstein’s own innovations to create something totally new for the commemoration of his work. The 3D printed publication is expected to launch at the “Dinner of the Century” event, hosted by the Albert Einstein Foundation. Held on September 10, 2017, the dinner will bring together the contributors from the book, as well as “young Einsteins and dignitaries from around the world.” Only about 500 copies of the 3D printed book are rumored to be made.
