Our team began development of Walnut Media’s internet streaming device by understanding the market: who watches what and how.
We then sought to understand how the device would be used in real-world settings.
Our design team explored inspirational forms, materials and styles…
for the physical streaming device and coordinating remote control. The design of the device and remote was created to step away from the black boxes that still fill the store shelves.
Our user experience team created interface options in tandem with development of the physical devices. The graphic theme has multiple style skins to match various home decors.
Final designs that reflected the young, fashionable market were refined.
Colors, materials and architectures were specified.
The screen menu has multiple live channel views that can show real-time, glanceable information such as recent tweets, temperature and shopping deals. The menu channels are quick to navigate, customize and legible from a distance.
The Walnut Media Internet Streaming Solution allows users to watch or listen to entertainment content, access social media or shop quickly and easily.
