Apple TV Concept - Martin Hajek
A purely speculative concept for the future of Apple TV by designer, Martin Hajek. The two products that he has predicted is the Unboxed and Ahead of the Curve, both questioning whether there will be a future of Apple TV and if so what would it look like.
For me, I think the “Ahead of the Curve” would be the face of the future for Apple TV. Curved television sets are just beginning to be launched into the market with LG and Samsung leading the way. I expect future TVs to all feature a curve and that is why i believe the “Ahead of the Curve” is more possible.
What I do disagree with is the gold colour options. Apple has only just launched its first, official gold product, the iPhone 5s. This is just a hand held device which most users customise anyways, whereas say a TV, needs to fit in with the surroundings. The gold colour choice really restricts the product as it wouldn’t fit most household sitting rooms. A black, dark grey or the classic Apple aluminium would.
