Yes, it’s old meets new (well, fairly new). By old, we mean the looks – the technology is every bit modern. Place the CD on the ‘deck’ and the arm, which is actually a laser pointer, picks up the music, playing back via the trumpet loudspeaker and some add-on speakers if you like.
Yong Jieyu’s design is still a concept right now, but with nostalgia and retro design being big business, it will be no surprise to see it in production.
