Design Considerations

  • Smart+Dart (or some other very fast) web application framework
  • Redis + Postgres
  • Elasticsearch
  • JS API for developers to account for
  • Sign in to services like amazon & netflix & spotify & pandora
  • No login or username creation like SONOS

Random Thoughts

  • Must be 4k enabled.
  • Unsure about 3D.
  • Signed About Screen with sigs of all developers
  • Pair up controllers
  • Controllers can be metamorphic, driven by developers (since there are no physical buttons, it has a mic, touch, etc)
  • Auto-tune for karaoke with phone mic.
