Virtual Kenwood: more Virtual Sunroom.

Regular "readahs" may have been wondering what happened to the weird and wonderous virtual Kenwood "pwoject". The answer is that it seems to have run into technical difficulties, related to the fact that in order to produce this stuff, you really need something with the computing power of HAL 9000 ("I'm sorry Dave. I'm afraid I really can't allow you to produce any more renders of John Lennon's virtual bidet".)
However - good news, for once. Chris, the highly talented artist behind it all, assures me that the "pwoject" is close to being back on track, and that the attic studio is almost done, together with the 360 degree QuickTime sunroom. This will allow anyone who so desires to experience exactly what it would have been like to be a member of the genus Musca Domestica in Kenwood, back in the days when flies were flies, not like these modern flies which are rubbish.
Anyway, here's another view of the sunroom, showing an imagining of the murky unfashionable end:

Thanks to Chris at thebeatlesin3D (link under Friends & Neighbours).


  1. Were a' rockin' -- HAL 9000 has received extra RAM and some updated software for the 360 views.

    It's not all HAL's fault however, as the "Honey Do" list, is never ending.

    The "virtual bidet" is complete.

  2. So looking forward to seeing renderings of the attic studio (and of course the bidet). Keep up the good work both of you guys!

  3. A side note: I'm really curious about the painting right above the round mirror in the sunroom. Are there any clear views?

  4. Good stuff, fellas...keep up the good work. I'll pop by now and then.
