Among other big ticket announcements during recently concluded Ubuntu Developer Summit(UDS) was the news of Ubuntu Unity's foray into Mobile and TV space. This was an exciting development to everyone in the community and user-contributed design mockups have been pouring in ever since. We had featured a bunch of really interesting Unity Mobile mockups before, now it's the turn of Unity TV based design mockups and ideas.
Following Unity TV mockups were created by Ian Santopietro. His own descriptions for each one of those mockups have also also been included underneath respective images.
|Just a simple login screen to let the system know which Ubuntu One account you want to use.|
|PINs would be completely optional, and off by default.|
|The Default home lens. It shows the last four things you watched/listened to, for quick access.|
|An example of a third-party lens; Netflix in this case. Here, it's showing me my Queue, but that would be up to the developer. Note the hint at additional content on the right.|
|You press a button on the remote, in which case you get some basic playback controls, as well as access to the dash.|
|Switching to the Apps lens, we see what apps would look like. Switching between apps isn't really necessary on a TV, so you can only have one app open at a time. BUT, but can have content playing (Music for instance).|
