Looks like GMC (the PC case maker, not SUV manufacturer) slapped the "Frog" concept PC case together for the sake of presenting something new for COMPUTEX 2010. The not-entirely-working mock-up supposedly accepts mini-ITX motherboards, and has a small LCD screen on top for an instant-on media mode.
Also on the top are big dials to change the channel and set the volume level, playback controls, and separate power buttons for the PC and instant-on mode. On either side of the main unit are stereo speakers, while at the front is a cooling grill and a DVD drive slot. All in all, the Frog looks like the bastard child of a small PC and a stereo component.
Since the concept is called "Frog", it follows that the casing should feature green accents on a tacky shiny black plastic finish. Maybe GMC should've gone for the minimalist washed or gun metal look? Less plastic and more steel always adds a certain class to consumer electronics, don't you think? Here's to hoping that GMC—or another company—improves on the aesthetics while retaining the stereo-like form factor. It would be great to control everything in the living room—games and the rest—from one gadget that looks like a genuine appliance.
