Do Origami For Play

The unique part of the PLAY MP3 Player is the way it works. It functions by either folding or sliding. To play the music, fold the player into half to form the icon ” β–Ά”. To rewind the music, slide one of pieces to make icon ” β–Άβ–Ά”. To stop the music, unfold the play triangle to a square or ” β–  “. PLAY MP3 Player most definitely adds a new dimension in MP3 designs! What do you think?

    & to fast forward? Otherwise I like it.

    woah… choice design. but one wonders, how does it go about sensing the change? Sensors that respond to distance to corresponding sensors in the other half, or by old school infared that can be activated when the folding begins?

  • I like it, it’ll totally keep me unBored. Though what if I’m in a hurry choosing play/stop/rewind? Wish there were buttons too aside from the folding. But really, I love it. It’s cute πŸ˜‰

      Thanks for reply!
      there is no notice about its concept
      -although I wrote it-

      First and main concept of “PLAY” is aware of TOO MUCH convergence products.

      Under the keyword of ‘convergence’, mp3 player in these days are used in versatile ways.

      Such as play movies, show photos, read texts. Even can watch UCCs in youtube with a mp3 player.

      On the other hand, ‘super convergence’ brings complicate usages and term to adjust in product.
      Ironically, the slogan “Faster, Higher, More” produces un comfortable.

      Want to know “PLAY” is just one of witty suggestion for ‘convergence world’ πŸ˜‰

      thank you for your reply!
      Sorry for I didnt notice about that
      Flip and slide can be work with electronic magnetic.
      No pictures submitted, we did many
      study mok-ups before.
      ofcourse its concept, this ‘electronic magnetic type’ needs more study.
