On Friday Curved, a German technology magazine, posted a concept which shows what the next-generation Apple TV and remote may look like.
The concept design features a touch screen remote, which looks like a scaled down iPod Touch. The new set-top box includes a brand new design, taking design cues from the iPhone 5S and iPad Air.
Designer Martin Hajek has taken the concept from Curved and released more images, showing different angles of the set-top-box and remote. The designs include the same set-top box and remote, but the set-top box now has a new colour.
The remote control features a home button and touch screen display, which would allow users to access and control specific channels like Netflix and audio/video playback directly from the screen on the remote.
Apple is expected to release an upgraded Apple TV in the spring, bringing with it various improvements including an upgraded processor, game support, and even its own App Store. The set-top box may also get additional content as the company continues investigating partnership opportunities with cable companies.
