IDEO I Miss My Pencil C60 Redux

IDEO’s I Miss My Pencil C60 Redux brings touch back to tangible music.C60 Redux is an MP3 player based on RFIDs, turntables and lots of wave with hearkens back to mixtapes of yore……..

IDEO recently decided to see if they could get back in touch with their audio roots and taking a page right out of the industrial design treatise I Miss My Pencil. To put it simply, what you’re looking at is a box filled with specially-angled Arduino Pro Mini boards constantly searching for RFID tags on top and a set of cards each with two RFID tags with each tag representing one song.When you drop one on the turntable it begins playing within a second for clever array of Arduinos underneath and you and your High Fidelity soulmate can leave multiple cards on the table to create an impromptu mixtape or presumably flip one of the “cassettes” to play Side B. It’s a good thing IDEO isn’t selling the device and packs of cards.
