One of the most unusual XBMC skin concepts ever to emerge on the XBMC forums came to my attention a while ago. The Paper Street Soap Company Skin – how cool is the name? – is completely different from what I’m used to. It’s a very unusual skin concept and I immediately thought: huge projector screen, western themed home theater!
The Paper Street Soap Company
Almost all skins in development – and finished ones, for that matter – are highly futuristic, clean, slick designs. This trend produced some of the most visually stunning skins ever seen on any software, be it media center software or not. Original Aeon skin comes to mind as the superb result of this trend.
The Paper Street Soap Company skin concept, however, shatters that apparent limitation for good. Proving that imagination is the limit when someone with an idea comes along, this skin concept looks like something that came directly out of Back to the Future III movie. After a few very encouraging responses on the forums, the mockups author, blacklist recruited some very talented coders and started working.
Don’t get your hopes too high do. According to blacklist, development may take up to a year. Hopefully he is kidding and we get to see a beta before the world ends in 2012.
