Dimple – Portable Music Player

Dimple challenges the conventional “human touch” technology by grafting subconscious instinctive human behavior onto technology. In the pursuit of designing a sensitive feedback for the human senses, we designed an intricate form of a dimpled depression, creating an almost unconscious but sensual occurrence of human nature to reach out for a unique element that titillates the fingertips subtly. Each time we navigate commands of skip and volume up/down on this portable music player by intuitive fiddling actions of the finger sweeping across and up/down the Dimple player, it seems almost we can touch our music, creating a personal touch to mobile music technology.
