Are our brains hardwired to prefer curves over straight objects?

A fascinating study that has been conducted scientifically, to show our innate preference to curved objects. This basically means that we should all learn how to fillet edges properly in Rhino.

“Another brain imaging study, conducted several years ago by Moshe Bar of Harvard Medical School, found that viewing objects with sharp elements–once again, square watches, pointy couches, and the like–activated the amygdala. That’s the part of the brain that processes fear. Bar and collaborator Maital Neta proposed that since sharp objects have long signaled physical danger, human brains now associate sharp lines with a threat. Curves, meanwhile, may be seen as harmless by comparison.”
