Created by an expert team passionate about product design, Slice is a media player unlike all others!
Like many products, Slice was conceived to solve a real world problem.
Mo, one of the founders of the project and avid XBMC user, wanted an easy to use, self contained media player that he could take with him on the road and that stored the data on-board rather than needing an internet connection. Not finding anything suitable off the shelf, the idea for Slice was born.
A team of five, including four further founders – people excited by the concept and able to put in the required development effort – came together to form a new company, FiveNinjas Ltd. Design work on Slice then started in earnest.
The vision for Slice was to create something not only aesthetically appealing but also easy to use and with a sense of fun.
The aluminium case and LED lighting system make Slice something you’ll want on display rather than hidden away with all the other generic boxes of electronics under the TV, and adds that all important fun-factor.
