Merlancia Concept designs

In a press release dated June 23rd 2001, Merlancia Industries revealed three concept designs for their Tsumami casework. As has been noted elsewhere, Merlancia has been inspired by previous Amiga developers, including the original Amiga Inc. Jon Carroll's rendered designs continue the trend showing a strong resemblance to Commodore Amiga products.

Tsunami Tower
The Tsunami tower unit appears to be aimed at the server market and is heavily influenced by Arthurs C. Clarke's 2001 imagery. The designer, Jon Carroll indicates the case has a vertically-mounted slot (on the second ridge at the top-right) for a DVD drive. A Panasonic model with a software-controlled eject may have been used.

The Tsunami set-up portrays a futuristic setting for their Amiga range. However, it is unlikely that the monitor will resemble that in the image.
