Key sound / Docking speaker

Key sound
Key sound

For users, in using docking speakers, I thought about how can it be more intuitive rather than existing docking speakers. I got a clue in people's behavior to get usability. As users dock instruments at speaker and turn on the power by turning docked instruments, a hidden speaker under simple shape appears naturally. As users naturally dock instruments at docking speaker and turn it like turning a key, a speaker slowly appears from bottom side and the music starts. By turning it the opposite way, users can undock instruments or change the docking speaker into standby mode.
