Ive Seen Eve

The first time I saw pictures of the sleek futuristic robot Eve from Pixar’s upcoming movie Wall-E, I thought she looked like something designed by Apple. Well, Fortune reports that’s exactly the look they were going for:

“I wanted Eve to be high-end technology - no expense spared - and I wanted it to be seamless and for the technology to be sort of hidden and subcutaneous,” Andrew Stanton, Wall-E’s director, told Fortune. “The more I started describing it, the more I realized I was pretty much describing the Apple playbook for design.”

Pixar even consulted with Jonathan Ive, Apple’s VP of Industrial Design. (via MacNN.)
