Why is it called Fing BOX, when it's a circular device?

    Do boxes have to be rectilinear parallelepipeds?

    B) Merriam-Webster:


    3: a box or boxlike container and its contents: such as
    a (British) : a gift in a box
    b: an automobile transmission
    c: Television
    d: a signaling apparatus alarm box
    ea usually self-contained piece of electronic equipment
    f: Boom Box

    Pooh's may have a addiction to honey, a strange fascination to red Balloons, and a odd predilection to compose hums at the most inopportune moments, but they're also a dab hand at consulting dictionaries  B)

    Actually we had many designs.
    One was a box - like really a square box. It wasn't as pretty. 
    The nicest and what we chose was round and some times we even thought it was like a bowl or saucer shaped. 
    Fingbowl just doesn't sound right in my opinion!

    Fingbowl ... yeah, I'd think that it wouldn't present the right mental image if you know what I mean! =)

    Fingbowl! hahaha it could be mistaken as something from the kitchen :D
    I am pretty glad you call it box; and the round form make it ease to disguise B)  
    Keep looking up!

    Well, now we have the InvisBox 2 - also round. Think Tech's telling us it's come full circle...

    @VioletChepil At some point it might be interesting to see the progression of the fingbox as it went from design stage to production. (Assuming there are no IP issues in showing it of course)
