This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve written about a concept product design from Giha Woo, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. A few years ago the original iPod Shuffle was a surprise hit for Apple. Besides the cheap pricepoint, I know I really liked the fact it had a built-in USB port meaning I could keep it charged wherever I could find a PC. But Giha’s Plug and Player takes things one step further, by building a simple MP3 player into an actual plug. So wherever you can find an outlet, which are arguably far more plentiful than PCs with free USB ports, you can keep it charged.
The wide stance of European-style power plugs seems ideal for the concept, but I suspect they could also be built into North American-style plugs with minimal compromise. But since it’s just a concept with seemingly no intentions of ever being produced, it’s kind of moot to even speculate international compatibilities.
