WALNUT Player / Music Player

WALNUT Player
WALNUT Player

Many people roll walnuts for their health and fun.
This experience of users is applied as an important factor of the design.
Based on the analysis of the phenomenon, a mobile MP3 player, which not only general people, but also the visually handicapped can easily listen to music and radio, has been designed.
The menu, which is made simple with braille, is designed for easy operation.
The finger-pressure movement, which is possible by walnut-rolling, is helpful for your health, and the revolving energy, which is made from walnut-rolling, is applied to the charging of Walnut Player so it doesn't need extra power supply.
