c60 Redux – Touch Your Digital Music
by IDEO’s Design Director Martin Bone and Materials Scientist Kara Johnson.
The concept behind the C60 Redux is this: We’ve gone from handling vinyl, tapes and CD‘s to clicking on MP3’s, losing tactility in the process and making a casualty of the mix tape. Is it possible to bring that back in a digital way? Bone, Johnson, and a group of IDEO designers endeavored to do so by creating a music player built with RFID readers and some Arduino Mini Pros, all housed in a record player case. See for yourself.
