A more subtle design of Inferno

Posted by Compulab Embedded Systems (Creator)

While Inferno original design may be considered subtle in "gaming PC" terms, the feedback we received from many backers is that a dark color scheme and more "boxy" less "curvy" appearance would be more welcome.

Our design team went back to the drawing board, and the thermal experts took the opportunity to push the thermal performance forward.

Kickstarter forbids realistic renderings, so we will settle for a sketch of the current concept.

See https://fit-iot.com/web/products/inferno/ for more about the concept.

The new concept improves heat dissipation by about 20% compared to the original design (better air-tubes profile, more air-tubes, larger external surface, taller air-tubes).

We learned long-time ago that listening to users and potential customers pays off.

Please feel welcome to let us know what you think of the design.

      Thank you all for the feedback.
      I think the preference is quite distinct.

      We will continue with the subtle all-black design.

      Best regards,

      Looks great! And the thermal performance increase is an even better news!

      to be honest, i preferred the other version. maybe all black. it had more of a wow factor, a more unique look. but in the end, what matters for me is efficiency.
      if this design is considerably better at dissipating heat, i don't really care.

      Looks great! Personally I would also remove the gray boxes around the ports on the facet card.

      Love it! Looks properly ‘infernal’ and seriously purposeful in a futuristic / sci-fi way. This design positively oozes power.

      Make sure to make the color pure matte black all over. Accent colors on small details: red and chrome or gold.

      Study the designs of RED cameras for further inspiration.

      You could win design prizes for this, and people will want to give it pride of place on their desks.

      Great job!
