Note Networks HiFi Router

Concept
High fidelity dedicated audio networking router
This was an early concept for a project that never took off but I always wanted to make use of the need for structural bracing withing injection molded parts. While the trend of transparent plastics have left us 20 years ago, I find the purposeful use of in-mold textures externally and intentionally artful internal bracing would be a beautiful way of finishing hardware. Without the added process of painting, one could improve yield rates while glorifying the components underneath without being at the mercy of however the PCB was composed.
