Coconut Streaming Devices

Multicoco is a TV Streaming Device Housed in a Colombian Coconut

— October 30, 2016 — Tech
Chromecast and Apple TV are excellent options for streaming games, movies, and series onto one's TV screen, but Multicoco is a curious device that fulfills the same function while providing a tiki bar-like atmosphere. That's because Multicoco houses its technology within the husk of a real coconut.

Technologically, Multicoco is an Android TV device that essentially provides the same viewing experience as a Chromecast box. The real appeal of the device is its unique look, though. Every Multicoco coconut is shipped directly from Maria la Baja, a small rural town in Colombia. The coconuts are hand-picked to ensure that only the finest husks get used. Those coconuts are then fitted with the appropriate ports, circuitry, and wiring by hand as well.

Beyond a WiFi connection, this connected coconut also comes with Bluetooth so that users can link up gaming controllers.

1. Connected Coconut Devices - The trend of integrating technology into everyday objects, like coconuts, provides opportunities for unique and visually appealing products.
