The idea, cooked up at the KEIO University in Japan, is to redesign the way people watch television. The cube is made up of LCD screens, each tunable to its own channel. That way, each member of the family, or guests, gets to watch just what they want.
Imagine a living room with chairs and sofas arranged around this cubic monolithic centerpiece, basking every placid face with a soothing electric glow. It’s supposed to give the living room arangement a more, eh, communal feel. There’s even built-in video cameras, enabling multiple Z-agon users to video-chat wirelessly.
Seeing as it’s a prototype, it’s not on sale. The idea has yet to be picked up by some manufacturer.
