Microsoft wants to take you behind the scenes of Xbox One in their latest YouTube video, “Xbox One and Design”. The six minute video discusses the coherency that the team achieved between the Xbox One Console, Kinect 2, and Xbox One Controller.

Highlighted are the number of concepts that were thrown around before settling on the system’s final design. Microsoft wanted their latest console to blend in with your living room and feature a high grade, yet simple, appearance. 

The Redmond boys also took the time to highlight other changes such as the console’s body with “liquid black” coloring, the Kinect 2’s hidden sensors, and the Xbox One controller’s impulse trigger technology.

Carl Ledbetter, createive director of industrial design at Microsoft, stated that:

“Xbox One needs to serve our most loyal gaming fans and deliver unique entertainment experiences, so its design has to make an appropriate statement that reflects its capability as an all-in-one entertainment system.”
