If – like us – you love a good concept, there’s one blog you should certainly put on your subscriber list. Every now and then, martinhajek.com is updated with a brand new concept featuring Martin Hajek’s idea of a great Apple product. The most recent post features a curved Apple TV set. It’s not brand new, but it is an updated version of something he created earlier this year.
As with most “iTV” concepts, it kind of looks like a giant iMac. It has the same metal foot, the same vents underneath the bottom edge, and the same thin edges and curved back. Where this one differs is that it features a concave, curved glass display.
In terms of hardware features, its on/off switch is just behind the top right hand corner of the display, and the back features all the necessary ports, almost hidden behind the device’s leg. On the UI front, the graphics show a transparency similar to that within iOS 7.
In reality, we have no idea what Apple plans to do in regards to the TV industry. At the moment, the Apple TV box is selling well and has grown from being just a “hobby” product, to being one that I highly recommend anyone with an iPhone or iPad buying. Two analysts came out yesterday with their beliefs that Apple would be releasing a TV set next year. One was the usual, Gene “Apple TV” Munster, the other was Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with a fairly reliable track record.
If Apple does release the long-fabled “iTV” next year, it may well look like this. Or it may be completely different to anything we’re currently imagining or predicting.
