A "high concept" media player
Of course, in the tech blogging scene, “high concept” is slang for “practically unusable and very unlikely to ever come out this side of Korea”.
This high-concept MP3 player from Chinese designer Can-Hong Huang (yes he can!) is torch-like in design, with a pleasing round docking base. The base has a pair of speakers in it, and although the headphones look a little bit harsh, they are at least wireless so there’s a chance of finding a comfortable way of wedging them in.
We’re not sure why you might need an MP3 player that could pass as a torch, though. Unless, perhaps, in China it’s illegal to own an MP3 player due to state restrictions on having fun, while owning a torch singles you out as a hard-working citizen who toils late into the night for the benefit of the nation.
The player is controlled by twisting it, with the torch-like bit capable of projecting photos and the operating system on a wall. Which will really annoy Mr Simpson in tomorrow’s German class.
