The Slingbox definitely features a unique product design with literal written its features on top of the casing. Additionally the box looks like a piece of chocolate. The promise of the Slingbox is to redirect, or "placeshift,” the TV signal from any cable box, satellite receiver, or personal video recorder to a viewer’s location and device of choice – whether in another room in the home or anywhere in the world with a high-speed Internet connection.
The Slingbox measures 10.6x1.6x4inch and weighs 1.5lbs. It has a TV tuner built-in and RCA Audio, Composite Video, S-video and RF/Coaxial inputs. It has an IR emitter and a Ethernet plug. Wireless network access is not built-in.
The MSRP is $249 and the shipping date is 1st half of 2005. Since the last story in August the price has gone up and the launch has been delayed 6 month. The Slingbox already won awards at this years CES.
