Joseph Dumary is an architectural designer with an interest in Microsoft’s next-gen console. Working on his own, he’s envisioned some interesting designs for the future of the Xbox — eliminating the trademark “X” for a slimmer, sleeker black design, and imagining a 100% digital interface matched with completely hands-free controls. It may not be the direction Microsoft is looking for in their next console, let alone something financially feasible, but the specs alone are definitely drool worthy.
The most notable features of this fan-fiction design are the use of KinectIN, a feature that allows the user to purchase a game and scan the chip to the console without using a CD — incorporating full Cloud support via the internal 2TB hard drive, and a wicked 8-core processor. Between the look and tech specs of this imaginary console, Dumary is clearly looking to the future of gaming and the minimalist design opportunities warranted by digital content.
