It's been called a gigantic mouse, a pregnant wii, and the new MAC. But what is it really? I wish it was a fuzzy logic Japanese rice cooker/Xbox 360 combo, but it's just a concept replacement chasis called "Ovo" by Zoozen. Don't get too happy in the pants yet -- the project is currently vaporware in consideration for production. I'm torn between calling it slick ... or completely generic and vapid, devoid of any unique branding not stolen from competing products. Ok, I hate it.
While it may make for 1337 coffee table conversation, we are curious if it solves any of the design flaws of the current console (overheated rice, anyone?) or if it opens up a new can of worms. Cooling is very important for a happy 360 and there are no facts on how this concept addresses that. As a red-ring of death veteran myself, I'm not going near any mod that isn't suitable for sustaining Knut.
