Few objects in recent history have been more visually impactful than Apple’s iPhone.

Ive is the senior vice president of design at Apple and “one of the two most powerful people in the world’s most valuable company,” according to The New Yorker.

The New Yorker is also where Ive revealed that he and good friend J.J. Abrams have had private discussions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not only that, Abrams took one of Ive’s suggestions about the design of the film and you’ve already seen it.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Star Wars bladebuilders

So much — maybe too much — has been made of Kylo Ren’s cross guard lightsaber from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The discussion has been all over YouTube; it made it to Comedy Central, and even to J.J. Abrams himself. It turns out though, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber was just the beginning.

Ezra on Star Wars Rebels recently changed what a lightsaber could be by putting one on the end of a blaster. And later this year, Hasbro will allow fans to make any kind of lightsaber they imagine with Star Wars Bladebuilders. Different hilt? No problem. Multiple blades? Sure. A cross guard? That’s nothing. You can literally do anything you want.

Below, see the first images of Star Wars Bladebuilders, which will launch at New York Toy Fair. Read More »
