Walnut Media MP50

Gold Award
The MP-50 is an internet streaming device and user experience designed for the masses. It can allow the user to watch or listen to entertainment content, access social media or shop quickly and easily.

The design of the device and remote was created to step away from the black boxes that still fill the store shelves. This device is elegant to look at and operate. PDT’s User Experience and Industrial Design teams worked together to create a cohesive, intuitive ‘plug-and-play’ experience.

The on screen user interface and remote were designed in tandem. The screen menu has multiple live channel views that can show real-time, glanceable information such as recent tweets, temperature and shopping deals. The menu channels are quick to navigate, customize and legible from a distance. The graphic theme has multiple style skins to match various home decors. Common icons are used on the remote, interface and port labeling on the back of the device. PDT designed the UI to be scalable to various resolutions, screen formats and screen clippings. When possible, the team used visuals or descriptions for settings that may not be common for the non-technical/beginner users.
