Autodesk dumping the PC in favor of 100% mobile

Autodesk announced today it’s intent to completely drop all support for its PC and Mac based software and fully embrace the mobile market by only delivering the next release of products to the mobile market.

Sitting in front of a computer all day can be tedious and boring, Autodesk intends to keep up with the trend of staring at your phone all day by bringing our software solely to you phone or tablet device. This allows us to focus on specific platforms while also freeing up more time to stare at our own phones.

Along with this announcement, comes the following initial suite of products:

  • Inventor for iOS
  • AutoCAD Mobile
  • Revit for Android

Inventor for iOS comes with a cool new technology that Autodesk has developed called “shake-to-design”. You simply start with a sketch and start developing critical part features. When you hit a mental roadblock or need help finishing your design a simple shake of your phone and the design will be completed for you in the most logical method possible.

I personally can not wait to get my hands on some of these products, and look forward to being 100% mobile with all of my CAD based applications.
