    Doesn't look great.

    Looks kind of retro....but that big and bland retro that looks awful.

    Beside it looking like a brick... the media button's are in the worst possible place. I hope those are not overriding buttons... as in I hope they do not stop a game if accidently pressed.

    Hmm looks a lot like the OnLive controller for there dedicated streaming box. Honestly this would be what could make there set-top box unique from all the others, a set top media box that can double as a game console if needed, at only 1/4 the cost of a PS4 or Xbone. They bought like 5 game developers in the last year or two so they could provide content for the box not to mention all the android games they have on there market. With a lot of those offering some kind of controller support a lot of the time. That gives them the unique feature needed to stick out in the set top ocean of devices out there.

    You are so right, it looks like the onLive without the chamfered edges, and functionally. Think they have a deal with the online guys, or own a stake in their company now. Wow, I was only aware of the latest ownership over Double Helix... can you link me to any other articles. I like to keep on the up and up, and these went under the radar. I Wikipedia's it but it isn't updated :(
