designer's own words:The orchid is a delicate natural sculpture rocking gently in the breeze. I believe that in the future our music will not only make us dance but our products as well. My concept is an attempted imitation of quiet natural beauty and movement. Polarized acoustics cause the object to sway rhythmically commensurate with the dynamics a song. The aurchid comes with software enabling a user to sync the music libraries on their computers or mobile devices to a Bluetooth wireless receiver embedded in the center body where songs will shuffle automatically. Operation is designed to be both simple and intuitive Twist the dial to raise or lower volume. Press it like a button to skip to the next song.
