Some years back, there was a portable record player called the Soundburger, which was the vinyl record equivalent of the Walkman, with the record hanging out ‘burger like’ from the player. And now in 2007, a similar concept for the modern age – the Dual Music Player.
Unopened, it is sized like a standard digital media player, able to play your MP3 tracks. But open it up and you can play CDs through those very same headphones. No great jump in technology, just a very clever convergence of MP3 and disc-based players.
It is designed by Yong-Seong Kim and is still a concept. But one that’s sure to get picked up.
