Email from atari.com teases about their new product - years in the making

Atari box email
I'd read about this on social media, but now I have an official Atari email telling me very little about their upcoming "box".
After more reading online, I feel confident in saying Atari has some sort of hardware in mind. When it comes to "years in the making", I wonder why they only registered their ataribox.com domain name last month.

While the sparse website has links for Media, Jobs, and Devs - they omited the social media links shown (but not linked) in their video. The email I received this morning resolved that and lets me view the blank accounts that also display no information. At least their Facebook page has a bit of interatction to show someone is watching fromthe Atari side.

I'll reiterate, today's Atari is simply a holding company that licenses the brand name to other products. You are probably most familliar with the AtGames' Atari Flashback game condoles that come out each holiday season, but the Atari name has been lent to a variety of things including a home automation product line.
