Google Chromecast Design

Google is one of those companies that truly inspire, with an incredible following and a seemingly unlimited supply of talented people, they are never afraid to ask, "What if...?".

With great respect and admiration for the Google Industrial Design team that brought us Chromecast, I wanted to also ask myself, "What if": Not so much a product redesign, but more of a brief exploration into what it might be like designing the Chromecast for Google.

The three project pages in this album follow my attempt at a Chromecast design that asks the question, "What if, we didn't make it a dongle?"

Feedback, as always, is welcome and appreciated.

  • Nice work, Sam! I just saw the reveal of the 2nd generation Chromecast and it looks like Google might have used your design as inspiration; they look so similar!

  • Thank you Michael, I really appreciate that! It was a very fun project to work on. Congratulations to you and your teams on an "out-of-the-park" product launch!
