My name is Sam Dirani. I am an Industrial Designer, a huge Google fan, and now a Chromecast fan. Ironically I still anxiously await my Chromecast's arrival, but have read most everything there is too know about the Chromecast online, including the great break-down at ifixit.com!
It would be a dream come true to work for Google one day, but until that day comes, I wanted to take a shot at the design itself. Google is one of those companies that truly inspire, with an incredible following and a seemingly unlimited supply of talented people, they are never afraid to ask, "What if...?".
With great respect and admiration for the Google Industrial Design team that brought us Chromecast, I wanted to also ask myself, "What if?": Not so much a product redesign, but more of a brief exploration into what it might be like designing the Chromecast for Google.
The three project pages in the linked album(Coroflot-Online Design Portfolio) follow my attempt at a Chromecast design that asks the question, "What if, we didn't make it a dongle?"
Feedback, as always, is welcome and appreciated. Hopefully links are permitted on this forum, otherwise I will do my best to reduce my files down to the 192KB size(gasp!)
Thank you all in advance! And if you like my work, please pass it on! Samhttp://www.coroflot.com/samdirani/Google-Chromecast-Design
