Apple Design new concept design for an Apple mp3 player. It is called the iBangle and it is unique as well as ground breaking. It’s no screen and it has some other really cool features.
You see that blue inner band? Push a tiny button on the side and it fills with air, expanding to fit snugly around your wrist. Apple iBangle’s a multi-touch track pad for easy navigation, and the audio finds its way to your ears via a couple of wireless earbuds. Alas, there’s no screen, but designer Gopinath Prasana figures you can navigate just fine with an audio-oriented navigation system.
One for the cool features of iBangle is that the band has inflatable cushion at the inner side; this allows you to have it snug to your wrist or dangling like a regular bracelet. Just press the blue button on the band to inflate and deflate the cushion.Ear buds with the annoying cords won’t be found here, as the audio is transmitted via wireless ear buds. There’s a multi-touch track pad for easy navigation. It also has a few additional buttons for music control. Although the iBangle doesn’t have a screen, you can navigate just fine with it’s audio-oriented navigation system.Just slide your finger for menu navigation, tap once to select the menu, or tap the Apple logo for home. Interestingly, Siri will play a very important role in this one, since reports reveal that the curved iPod will be controlled, almost entirely by Siri.
Even though this concept has been widely spreaded since 2008, we still can’t see the music player designed by Gopinath Prasana in the market yet. I tried to browse several more information about this gadget, such as the memory capacity, and how to transfer the music files into the device, is it USB transferable or bluetooth, and how to recharge the gadget if it has ran out of power. Unfortunately, I still cannot find such information mentioned in the world wide web. Anyway, I think the concept is brilliant and will definitely make a hit when it’s released.
