Hi Fellow Chromecasters!
« on: September 04, 2013, 03:36:43 PM »
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!   Sam

hi there Samdirani,

Welcome to the forum.  As per the forum rules we typically don't allow personal links (it just gets out of hand once everyone starts doing it) but since the board is so new I'm allowing one link for developers and others working on Glass or Glass related projects temporarily to get some good discussions started.  This is the Member Introduction thread however so I would ask you to move everything after your initial introduction into a new topic on either the general discussion board or the development board as it's more appropriate there.  Thanks,

BFM
