‘colorsonic’ by rhea jeong

‘colorsonic’ mp3 player is a system relating to color combination playlists that connect music and emotional links.

rhea explains her design: music is taken into mp3 device through the software, which converts them into associations with the colors chosen by the user. the colors are tagged with particular emotional states that the user understands and feels through that color. the color that the user selected to appear in the mp3 device then becomes a playlist of color combinations.

colorsonic mp3 player is based on a full touch screen system on the top screen as well as the inner rim of the donut shaped product allows the user to control the music player without looking at the screen.
