Transparent House, a San Francisco-based 3D design and visualization studio, has released a lovely two-minute animation celebrating 34 years of Apple (AAPL) design.

The video, rendered with Autodesk's (ADSK) 3ds Max and the Chaos Group's V-Ray, took about 10 days to complete. It would probably have been easier to film the thing, but then it wouldn't have looked anywhere near as cool.

The finished product is available from Vimeo here.

Below the fold: the YouTube version.
