I’ve been enjoying Joel Johnson’s fawning fanboy coverage of Syd Mead on Boing Boing Gadgets. Hey, I’d fawn, too. I’m a huge fan of Mead’s and even thought about becoming a conceptual or industrial designer on his inspiration. In this episode of BBtv, Joel talks with Mead about the awesome one-of-a-kind Spinner police vehicle from Bladerunner that the folks at LEGO did as a present to Syd.
