I just moved into a new house and the FIRST thing I did after the cable company set things up was HIDE their hideous black box! Designed with this common feeling in mind, I/O explores an alternative look that you won’t mind keeping visible.
While we will try and mask or hide a bulky black box, the I/O TV set-top box focuses on visibility in the form of a transparent case that gives users a look into the inner workings of the device. Its circuitry is proudly on display for a unique technical aesthetic. Through the large window into the operations of the device, input / output points of the product are highlighted and create a deeper sense of interaction with the user.
