During my experience at Mike and Maaike design studio, in 2011, I have been involved in the Google Nexus Q music device project, and developed with the Team the custom audio and power cables.
“ The design team also tweaked the platform’s banana jacks, re-imagining an audio hardware standard first introduced in 1924. We couldn’t find any that looked good,” says Evers. – They’re all gold and gaudy, with terrible detailing. So we had to do a custom one to make it look right – ”
The project has been presented at Google I/O 2012 conference.
