More Hockey Puck photo love


Here are some professional photos of the hockey puck design. Enjoy!


(Reminder, just in case people haven’t been paying attention: Microsoft commissioned this design as a proof of concept in order to drive creative thinking about small-form-factor home servers. Microsoft has no plans to produce our own home server hardware.)

    I think in one of the previous posts about the hockey puck, there was mention that the green glow changing to match the network health.  Was that something built in to the proof-of-concept design?  If so, could you fine folks post a pic or two of the hockey puck when the network health is at risk or critical?

    I can’t wait for the final release.  I’ve been loving the beta and CTP, and I know it’s just gonna get better.

    This looks insanely cool.

    Would it be legally possible for an OEM to produce that design? I would love to buy one 🙂
