Product of compact sets compact in box topology?

 Quote by spicychicken if S_n is the set with empty sets in each index except n where for index n you have [0,1], then {S_n} is an open cover with no finite subcover...i think
Such a sets will always be empty. Try to consider a cover by all sets of the form

$$\prod_{n\in \mathbb{N}}{A_i}$$

Where Ai=[0,0.6[ or Ai=]0.5,1]
