The 1937 RCA Magic Eye Radio was the top of the line radio it cost as much as a new Ford Car. At $692 it was a large purchase. It stands 43 inches high, is 29 inches wide and 15 inches deep. I decided to model this radio for the 3d challenge because we have one sitting in our living room. We were given the radio by my mother-in-law who got it from the original owners. The owners had owned a garage and trailer park in the Yreka, CA. area during the early days of the automobile. Mr. Watson had even been a pilot in the early days and had flown a Jenny.

The design concept for this 3d Challenge was to create a Communications Satellite. My fantasy was a manned vehicle that could circle and be in any place in the world. It would have the capability of capturing real time 3d video that it could broadcast to the entire world. As shown in the render it could show the development of a hurricane to the developing of a skirmish or war anywhere around the surface of the globe. Another feature of such a vehicle is it could show any of the new developments in space. Imagine watching the development of weather in 3d or the melting of the polar cap.
