Xbox One is Microsoft's latest video game console, successor to the Xbox 360. Microsoft and various publications have classified the new Xbox as an "all-in-one entertainment system," making it a competitor to other home media devices such as Apple and Google TV platforms. Today, the US Patent and Trademark Office granted Microsoft a design patent for the Xbox One.
Unlike "patent applications," design patents published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office don't reveal pertinent information about a particular design. We can look at the design and appreciate it for what it projects, but that's about it. Below we're able to see the key angles of Microsoft's Xbox as found in design patent D700,246. It was published today by the US Patent Office.
Maybe it's just me, but I don't think that Microsoft has to worry about anyone wanting to copy the design of this bulky device.
