I have since the release of the first PS3 images been wondering what lies beneath that trunk-like flap on the front of the console.
It looks like it opens up but, this lead me to wonder about a few things;
Like how it opens, which direction? And what is underneath it?
So i drew a few mock ups of what could be there..
This is the flap I am talking about, you all following? :icon_smil
I had a debate with myself on how you would remove this flap. In this concept, you unclip/slide it from the unit.
In this concept of how to remove the flap, you flip it up, like the trunk of a car.
So next, I had to think of what would actually be underneath or inside the flap. So I started with the usual Memory Stick / SD Card concept.
In this concept of what is inside the flap, I got an idea (that extends out of the console) to include a slot for a card for the Sony Online Network, that holds your Accound Details and Ballance etc. It's just a little idea of mine.
This final sketch is something completely different to the subjet of the flap, but it was just something that questioned me.
The On/Off and Disk Eject buttons would be feather touch sensitive. So one slight touch, even dropping your finger lightly on it, would activate the button.
Thank you for looking at my (pointless?) ideas :) I hope they spark some questions and ideas. And i will update this thread with more ideas of my own, or ideas from you people.
