Music Café / Audio System

Music Café

Music Café is a wireless audio system that uses drinking tea as a metaphor of the interaction between the user and the product. It provides users with the simple and intuitive operation of the digital gadgets which resembles tea-drinking behaviors

Music Café consists of three devices such as a music stick (MP3 player), a plate (charger), and a cup (speaker). When you put the music stick into the cup, music is played through the speaker. The volume is controllable by stirring the cup with the stick. If the stick and the cup need more electricity, you can charge them by placing them on the plate.
