Tedious Rubik’s Cube MP3 Player Concept

Several companies have spent the past 6 or 7 years improving and streamlining the interfaces of MP3 players with touch sensitive wheels, strips and screens so maybe it’s time to start heading in the other direction.

This concept MP3 player by designer Hee Yong is based on the popular Rubik’s Cube puzzle and requires a bit of thinking to operate. To turn it on you simply need to start playing with the cube and each layer has a different function like play, pause or skip. I assume you need to properly align certain columns or rows to get it to do what you want and of course the only way to turn the player off is to complete the puzzle.

Somehow I don’t think they need to rush out and patent their design.

    I dont think you have to actually solve the puzzle to change songs, i think its just part of the design. If you look closely it has buttons on some of the bricks.

    Hahah, this is brilliant.

    With a LCD screen occupying 3 block on the middle row, you can’t mix it up too much…
    But this is the type of player I’d want 😉
