What's inside the 3D book in the shape of Einstein's head
Finished product will include essays about the future from 100 modern-day visionaries.
by Benyamin Cohen | Thursday, September 8, 2016
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield spent about six months living in outer space, floating around weightless. So it's quite appropriate that a guy who lived without gravity would be honoring the founder of the theory of relativity.
The space man will be the first contributor to a special book honoring the legendary physicist Albert Einstein. He will join 100 modern-day icons who will share their visions of the future in what is being billed as the world's first-ever 3D-printed book.
"Albert Einstein was a brilliant scientist and a passionate human being," Hadfield said. "He helped us to understand our universe in a new, clearer way, and I'm excited to help celebrate both his accomplishments and how he inspires us all."
Hadfield won the hearts of people all across the globe while he lived aboard the International Space Station and posted images to Twitter and videos to YouTube. His David Bowie tribute video garnered more than 30 million views.
In addition to Hadfield, four other contributors were also announced: environmentalist David Suzuki, Paralympian Rick Hansen, Olympic speed skater Johann Olab Koss and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté. The book's publisher also hopes to include visionaries like Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, J.K. Rowling and Elon Musk. The book – which will be titled "Genius: 100 Visions of the Future" – is the brainchild of Hebrew University in Jerusalem, a school Einstein helped establish and where his archives are kept.
When completed, the 3D book will actually be in the shape of Einstein's head. The publication is expected to coincide with a gala event one year from this week – on Sept. 9, 2017 – called the Dinner of the Century, which will gather leaders from the sciences and humanities at the Smithsonian Institution.
Israeli designer Ron Arad, whose glasses are one of Oprah's favorite things, has been tasked with designing the book, which will be available in limited edition. An estimated 500 copies will be produced, with the proceeds going to charity. Also known for wearing quirky hats, Arad's award-winning design items include furniture made from old car parts, unconventional bicycles and even a leading design museum in Israel that changes color as its metallic surface rusts.
"When I began designing this book, I thought, we are dealing with the Einstein legacy – let's do something that's relatively new," Arad said. "That led to the creation of this book, where the two-dimensional pages form a three-dimensional portrait. I wanted the design of this book to reflect the legacy of Albert Einstein and I think the honor of the world's first 3D-printed book is suited to nobody better than one of history's greatest minds."
Professor Hanoch Gutfreund, the academic director of the Albert Einstein Archives at Hebrew University, sees this collaborative project as in tune with Einstein's thinking. "There is this perception that Einstein was a genius working alone, and discovering everything. That's not true," he told From The Grapevine from his home in Israel. "There was a whole community. He corresponded with dozens of great researchers, great minds. He made many mistakes. Many of his colleagues corrected him, but he was a leader. He was kind of an inspiration for everybody."
Rami Kleinmann is the President and CEO of the Canadian Friends of The Hebrew University, a group that's helping spearhead the new 3D project, timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Einstein's theory of relativity. "Everybody talks about out-of-the-box thinking. Everybody talks about creativity. Everybody is talking about innovation," Kleinmann told us. "We've finally reached the era of Albert Einstein. We've just been 100 years behind him. If he were alive today, I'm sure that he would be 100 years ahead of us again." https://www.fromthegrapevine.com/arts/first-3d-printed-book-albert-e...
“Genius: 100 Visions of the Future will collect the thoughts of 100 leading influencers, thinkers, artists, and scientists of our time in the world's first 3D-printed book.”

"Genius: 100 Visions of the Future" - World's First 3D printed book prototype unveiled last night in Montreal at gala dinner - "Celebrating a Century of Genius"
- Dinner was part of a series of events celebrating the life and legacy of Albert Einstein -
MONTREAL, Sept. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Over 400 kilometres above the earth, the world's first 3D printed book prototype of "Genius: 100 Visions of the Future", printed in zero gravity, was unveiled last night at the "Celebrating a Century of Genius" gala dinner. This 3D printed book, "will feature some of the world's preeminent experts in fields spanning science, technology, literature, art, business and education, with each of its pages dedicated to a single contributor's vision," said Elan Divon, Vice-President of CFHU. Designed by renowned artist Ron Arad, the specially designed laser-cut pages in the likeness of Einstein, serve as a collective vision of our time. Contributing visionaries include Barbra Streisand, Deepak Chopra, Craig and Marc Kielburger, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Sylvia Earle, Frank Gehry, Jeff Skoll, Tiffany Shlain and Obiageli Ezekwesili.
The 3D space book printed at the International Space Station was coordinated by Japanese aeronautical engineer and JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi, Flight Engineer, Expedition 22 and Expedition 23 aboard the ISS. Conceived by Rami Kleinmann, President and CEO of Canadian Friends of Hebrew University and brought to life by Yifat Sharon, 3D Space Book Project Manager, the project, in collaboration with NASA, marked a milestone in publishing history.
"We are truly humbled and honoured to be surrounded by so many of the world's visionaries who were able to join us in celebrating the life and legacy of Albert Einstein", said Monette Malewski, co-chair, Celebrating a Century of Genius. "It truly speaks to the relevance of Einstein and the importance of fostering the next generation of brilliant minds."
"Celebrating a Century of Genius", a weekend in collaboration with Lune Rouge, featured events to inspire a new generation of innovation and creativity. The weekend began with the Innovative Youth Forum, held on Thursday and Friday, which served as a breeding ground for tomorrow's young innovators, some showing their inventions and discoveries. Over 500 students joined industry leaders and visionaries, most notably: Keynote Speaker Sir Ken Robinson,international educationalist and most watched TED speaker of all time, who led the summit which also featured speakers including Daniel S. Goldin, NASA's longest serving administrator, Karen Reisman, author and cousin of Albert Einstein, Davide Tomassini from the European Space Agency, Amal Elsana Alh'jooj, Hebrew University's Dr. Amir Amedi, Jan Creamer, and Matt Price Gallagher, Youth Forum Founder and President, Quantum Leap Experiment.
The "Genius 100: Innovation Summit" was held Sunday morning and featured some of the world's greatest minds speaking on topics ranging from science & technology, the environment, education, the arts and literature. Speakers included Chris Hadfield, Rick Hansen, Gro Harlem Brundland, Guy Laliberte, Hitoshi Murayama, Nancy Lublin, and Sandra Witelson from McMaster University, a Canadian neuroscientist best known for her analysis of Albert Einstein'sbrain and the ability to measure a person's creative potential based on their brain structure.
The highlight of the weekend, the gala dinner "Celebrating a Century of Genius" was held at MTL Grande Sunday evening and hosted by Daniel Ferguson and Lorraine Pintal, actor and director of TNM. Ferguson is the writer and one of the producers of "Einstein's Incredible Universe" a 3D film to be released in 2018. Gala attendees included James Caan, Judy and Larry Tanenbaum, Calin Rovinescu, Maggie Macdonnell, Amb. Haile Menkerios, Hebrew University President Asher Cohen, Denis Coderre, mayor of Montreal and Mr. Takeshi Uchiyamada Chairman of the Board Toyota Motor Corporation. One of the greatest gatherings of Nobel laureates, intellectuals, artists and scientists, guests were treated to a culinary symphony of global flavors created by Hong Kong-Canadian legendary chef, Susur Lee, in collaboration with leading Montreal chefs. In the true spirit of this global celebration, the evening closed with the world-wide debut of a new composition created by renowned composer, Shuki Levy alongside writer Tori Avey Levy, "Speed of Light" was performed alongside a music video by youth choirs from all corners of the world, including South Africa, India, Canada, Israel, and the United States.
