The intended environment for the XR-1 is beyond rugged, but perhaps more challenging is what happens inside the shell.  The engineering team effectively re-invented the PC - adapting each component to perform well beyond the industry standard.  On top of this, there was a no-holds-barred approach to functionality:  every kind of antenna possible, every kind of input viable (touch, stylus, a glow in the dark keyboard with biometrics and seam sealed touchpads).   The ID was the bridge between these two worlds - our intent was to communicate the inner qualities of the product and also adapt to the external trials of everyday use.
