‘play’ is produced in a range of colours


created by hong kong -based designer fabien nauroy for native union, ‘play‘ is a miniature video-memo device, shaped like a speech bubble. a 2.4-inch colour screen is flanked on the right by three buttons: play, record, and delete. users may record a video message of up to three minutes using the device’s tiny 0.3-megapixel camera. ‘play’ has a magnetic back so it can easily stick to refrigerators and other objects.

when a message is recorded and ready for listening, a light blinks in the lower part of the speech bubble and the screen shows an envelope icon.

on display at CES 2012, the device is produced in white, black, pink, blue, green, red, and purple, and costs 60 USD.
