At our Ontario industrial design company, Mako Design, we get excited over all news in innovation, technology, and product design. Without a doubt, following the news of new technologies is one of our passions, as we love to see how some of the most influential and genius innovators and designers from all over the world tackle modern problems to further create the latest technology and designs to help push our society further. With how much innovation, technology, and design has changed and influenced our world, observing and learning from the latest innovations help reflect us what designs and innovations our society looks for and values, and can further gear us in the right direction to continue making some of the best designs. With the news of Sony creating an all-new PlayStation console, we took it upon ourselves as an Ontario industrial design company and design lovers, to look at and analyze its latest design and see how it reflects the best choices for innovation.
What Our Ontario Industrial Design Company Think About the PlayStation 5 + Analysis
With the release of the PlayStation 5 came a lot of excitement and curiosity as to what the designers at Sony had in stores for their audience. The video gaming community is well-known for being persistent on their need and appreciation for high-quality graphics, gameplay, control, and a well-built console, so there were a lot of expectations amongst the initial news of a new console. After its reveal, our Ontario industrial design company saw that the latest console was shown to carry a striking new white design that matches the DualSesnse controller. On a smart play for Sony, any experience designer knows that it’s important to carry branding and stylistic elements along with the newest releases of products in order to stay true and consistent with any previous designs in order to build familiarity and brand recognition.
To our Ontario industrial design company, the design of the console itself is built in a slim body that uses contrasting dual colors. The contrast in its different colors is strategically chosen so that the design looks even more slim and sleek than it already it – a value that console gamers appreciate at it adds to the modernity of the latest console. Blue light sits within the gap of the two surfaces, signifying where air flows in between the console and gives it a more light, calming appearance to the console. It’s important to note that the design of the console was made to look sleek and slim no matter how its placed within the home, whether it be vertical or horizontal. Overall, the design is striking, gives homage to its newest branding, and has a light calming appearance, reinforcing its innovative new look that is both minimalistic yet powerful.
