Quicklinks - Blender in the Media


Here's another handful of items about recent appearance of Blender in the international media: a Blender article in Playboy magazine, a famous Blender user on, some videoblogging and the appearance of a short bit of Blender on American national television.

A friend of mine has been working in blender for a few years now and now it has paid off. He may have only gotten about 3 sec. of Fame but it will be shown on ABC. It is about how blonde hair is hard to make in 3D. Check it out.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. blender in playboy? i thought playboy was an american magazine featuring lightly dressed ladies. Blender is sexy of course, but still....

  2. Or maybe a blenderhead did make a buxom chick with pixels. LIke the one Maxim did for Final Fantasy ;)

    Although you can't exclude the hypothesis that they might have a picture of Ton Roosendal in speedo on the central poster page. Remind me of Guido van Rossum and Python. And he is dutch too :)

  3. @Kram1032: the link works fine in both browsers for me. The page uses embedded quicktime, maybe there's an issue with the quicktime installation on your system?

  4. I read somewhere that blender was used on the History Channel all the time, for Modern Marvels. I think it was the wikipedia blender entry, iirc

  5. I got a hold of a copy of the November 2006 issue of Playboy in pdf form, in its entirety, ads and all, and it's only got 186 pages and I don't see anything about Blender. What's the deal? This is the US edition. It's the one with a cover feature on Girls of the Hawaiian Tropic.
