The MP3 player, Surface Alive, is an innovative product that uses the sense of tactile touch, which has not been deeply considered as a product interface until now. The numerous tiny jutting dots covering the product change the shape of the surface as the undulations are adjusted. By adjusting the height of the tiny dots on the physical interface the product offers optimal shapes for each function. Additionally the surface can be changed dynamically and therefore can be used like an animation. The product offers a sensual experience by touching the surface, which is far more fun than the pseudo experience of a simple vibration.
