Here’s an iTV concept Jony Ive would approve of

iTV mockup (Martin Hajek 002)

Resident Apple mockup artist Martin Hajek is on a roll lately. Just a day following his publication of the traditional iWatch concept which adorns the April 2013 cover of the MacUser magazine, he’s back at it with a new Apple television mockup that has Jony Ive written all over it. The beautiful renderings are based on the familiar iMac look and sport the sinister black design, with details reminiscent of the iPhone 5. Go past the fold for the full awesomeness…

Hajek created these mockups for the iCreate magazine from the Netherlands. Dutch readers can head over to iCreate’s web site for more tidbits on Martin’s design thinking.

Here’s a closeup of the front-facing FaceTime HD camera for video calling. It’s been rumored that Apple’s been looking to implement Kinect like gestures so additional onboard cameras to pick up the user’s infrared signature are quite easily possible.

The power button is hidden on the back, in the upper right corner.

The all aluminum back features an iMac like hinge.

Do I see the chamfered edges here?

Such a sexy badass TV set is a fit for Darth Vader’s living room.

Wouldn’t you love to have such a sinister looking HD TV with the shiny Apple logo on it?

    Looks quite gorgeous, reminds a little bit of iPhone 5 and the new iMac thin design too :D (Though, the first pic could’ve had the Startscreen from ATV instead)

      Hannah. I can see what your saying… Joe`s blog is great… last tuesday I got Lotus Elise from bringing in $5217 this – four weeks past and more than ten grand this past month. this is definitely the easiest-job Ive ever had. I actually started nine months/ago and pretty much immediately startad making at least $85, per hour. I work through this website………. BIT40. ℂOℳ

    Actually, no .. All iOS apps are designed for touch screen devices, and for a TV to be a touch screen can’t really be called TV. also .. I’m not sure about this but most of those apps are designed for small screens/retina and not enormous

    Over all of this, they already have an iMac that is designed just like a TV, if they ever thought of making a TV, they would either change the iMac title to something that has the combination of Mac and Tv then make two versions of it, one for mac and one for TV and of course the Mac is more expensive, Or just add a TV feature to the iMac, but anyway i don’t think they will ever do this concept

    Cant see the basic, coax

    It would be awesome having one of these that comes with an Apple TV built in!

    One detail that screams apple is the custom hole patter on the back, you know, not a standard VESA mounting pattern. That detail just really hits the nail on the head. But it does look like almost a standard power connector and USB, nahh.. apple would not do that… So close to what Apple might do, but so far away…

    needs app store; unique “in store only” Apple TV apps. uses iphone or ipod touch or 3rd party controller for gaming/remote controller. close knit integration with tv channels, show time, description, upcoming shows etc etc. a unique DVR system that can push show content using wifi to ios devices or mac. can airplay mirror from any iOS 6 device or mac device running 10.8. airplay music from any ios device or itunes computer. facetime. a unique notification system; maybe something like 10.8. social media integration; facebook; twitter etc. and if running apps; a background system and a faster way to kill apps; maybe something like killbackground jailbreak tweak.

    just adding my 2 cents.

    At the end of the post it says “wouldn’t you live to have such a sinister” I believe you meant “love”. I’m a lover of reading, and while I’m a History Major right now, my second passion is English. This just sticks out more than the awesome photos. By the way I would love to have a TV like this.

    Looks amazing, but did anyone else notice it uses the pre-iOS 6 Settings icon?

  • http://twitter.com/iThemeBig iThemeBig

    just ecause its from Apple doesnt mean it should use that same UI. That would be impractical on a TV

  • http://twitter.com/e420kush e420Kush

    wow, its beautiful.

    Seriously this doesn’t look like an ATV at all. More like an iMac with less power and iOS.

  • Mohammad Ridwan

    Meh.. not impressed. Mr. Ive’s version will be the real deal. btw, I don’t think Jony Ive would approve this iMac knockoff design..
