Iconic Human-tech

Honestly, just read this story because it's a nice little write up/interview with 4G Prius Chief Designer, Shunsaku Kodama.

I met Kodama-san in Las Vegas before the 4G debut. We sat next to each other during dessert and he's a fascinating guy. We share the same love for great eyewear.

Anyway, interesting enough, one of the other stories I picked up from one of the Toyota-Japan marketing chiefs was how the Prius roof was consciously designed to echo the shape of Mount Fuji. Which is just beautifully Japanese even if it's just a story.
