In an industry which can every so often become congested in imitation and unoriginality, it’s always refreshing to see a new design that is exceptionally innovative. Chris Williams set out to create a music player with a unique design, rather than conforming with current players, which can still provide a highly usable interface.
The resulting Musipen confidently moves away from familiar formats, yet should prove to be equally portable and practical. Not only does the cylindrical form of the Musipen allow an increased screen space, but consequently the controls are very simple. Twisting and sliding each edge of the player navigates through menus and adjusts volume. The imaginative design would certainly provide a welcome change to the MP3 player industry.
