CURVED has created a new concept that imagines the new Apple TV as an HDMI dongle.

The fourth generation of Apple TV could be introduced this spring; we layed out our concept of an Apple TV touch a couple of weeks ago. But it doesn’t actually take a full blown set-top box to invade the living room as Google’s widely successful dongle Chromecast which debuted last week in Europe has proved.

Welcome to Apple TV Air!
• Apple TV Air is the cheapest possible way to watch Apple TV
• It consists of two parts: the HDMI 'dongle' (the actual Apple TV) and a small remote control, both sold together in one box for aprox. 49 $/EUR.
• The dongle is powered through HDMI, while the remote has a small changeable battery like the current Apple TV remote
• Connection over Bluetooth (IR not possible due to fact that the box will always be out of sight)
• Made from plastic materials to keep costs down but maintaining Apple’s trademark quality (think back to the first generation Apple iPod shuffle)

Take a look at the images below and let us know what you think!

I'd rather have more buttons for better functionality. It looks like an improved 1st generation remote but a step backwards from the 2nd one.

Would probably work better with RF controls than Bluetooth.

I'm a dedicated Apple fan. A few months back I purchased the apple tv3. I really liked the freedom of streaming media using the internet.. However, a few weeks back I started playing with xbmc and fusion add-on... It was amazing what I could achieve with XBMC, and a android based media player like the Mygica streamers. Since then, I've come to the conclusion that Apple TV is simply a waste of money and a crap investment if it cannot be jailbroken. I'm starting to lose my patience with apple products... Starting to understand why a lot of people hate iOS devices. Dont get me wrong, I love Apple's hardware and stylish created products...I'm just getting sick of being so limited and forced to use "apple-only" services like itunes. Why do I not have the freedom to install things like XBMC on my apple tv if I so choose? Cannot help but feel Apple is far more interested in their own wealth than customer satisfaction and freedom...

I tried roku one time, their is no potential to it whatsoever except more channels which I don't watch. Apple TV is the best streaming device, does roku have jb like anything to be ATV. Sure the remote has less buttons but it's more functional.
