IDEO constructs RFID turntable, hearkens behind to mixtapes of yore (video)

Once on a time, you could touch your music — or at least toy a 7- or 12-inch vinyl disc — but these days the cold kids tide MP3s (and OGGs, and APEs) off a internet. However, design college of music IDEO recently decided to see if they could get back in touch with their audio roots, as well as — receiving a page right out of the industrial design dissertation I Miss My Pencil — they built the on top of appurtenance. To put it simply, what you’re looking during is the box filled with specially-angled Arduino Pro Mini play all the time acid for RFID tags on tip, as well as the set of cards each with dual RFID tags, with each tab representing a single song. When you drop one upon a turntable, it begins personification inside of a second, interjection to the crafty array of Arduinos underneath, and you and your High Fidelity soulmate can leave mixed cards on a table to emanate an unpretentious mixtape, or, as if, flip a single of a “cassettes” to play Side B. It’s a good thing IDEO isn’t selling the device as well as packs of cards, because we’re afraid we’d be constrained to pickup them all, as well as the bad wallet doesn’t need any more heartbreak. Don’t miss a video next!
