Flipper is a unique smartphone operated Android TV device.
As a smartphone operated device, Flipper does not have buttons or other special operating features. In fact the device’s most profound physical requirement was the venting openings which had to be plentiful due to the thermal engineering requirements.
On the basis of these technical requirements we decided to use the venting openings as the leading visual element of the device and an integral part of the product’s design. This was achieved by turning the venting opening into a 3 dimensional texture that both hides the many ventilation openings, gives constructional values to the plastic shells, and are part of the product’s unique visual identity and desired look and feel.
