Vivid, Luminous, and Guiness
Vivid, luminous, precious – these were some of the terms Paddy White and his design team at RealTime Technologies came up with over a couple of pints of Guiness in a Dublin pub. The iONYX, RealTime Technology’s design entry for the Intel Core 2 Challenge PC Design, is made of plastic, but looks like a jeweled, precious stone. RealTime’s goal was to create a wall-mountable or a table-mountable home media center running Intel Viiv technology, with a small form factor, in a pleasing design. Producer’s note: Paddy White suggested we use Chopin’s Nocturne in E-flat Major to go with the iONYX, but we had to settle for the Nocturne in F Minor — still fitting, we thought.
