Apple TV Set Concept

Reportedly, Apple is preparing the new Siri-powered Apple television sets — to be released in 2014. Apple is said to be initially working on 32-inch and 37-inch sizes. In Walter Isaacson’s biography of the late Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs stated:

“‘I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use,’ Jobs told Isaacson. ‘It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.’ No longer would users have to fiddle with complex remotes for DVD players and cable channels. ‘It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.’”

If an Apple TV set does make an appearance next year, it could take UI and hardware design cues from the below concepts. Inspired by the design of IOS 7, Apple’s current Apple TV and the iMac, Martin Hajek and Andrew Ambrosino collaborated to create this stunning curved Apple TV set concept which would greatly reduce glare and reflection.

Martin adds, “Taking iOS7 to the big screen is not a simple matter of scaling up iOS – I like the way this concept UI makes use of simple elements of iOS7 yet manages to make it look good on a huge 46″ ‘canvas’.”

A Moat Is the Latest Luxury Home Requirement In California

Estates with a moat do provide a service to the homeowners, states the LA Times“…a Beverly Hills contemporary built on a promontory, a narrow one serves a practical purpose. The moat around the $36-million property takes the place of a guardrail, which would have obstructed the stellar city views.”

Designer Steve Hermann, who is based in Beverly Hills and has worked on homes for many celebrities, said that he also included the botox room in a $65m mansion that does not even have a buyer yet. Other outrageous home luxuries in California include the following amenities:

- dental chairs
- Italian-style wellness suites
- closets completely covered in hand-stitched leather
- a fully-equipped hospital room
- a 3,000-bottle, wall-long wine cellar in the kitchen
