Monster iMotion CarPlay 3000 lets you control your iPod in the car with motion control

Monster iMotion CarPlay 3000 lets you control your iPod in the car with motion control

Controlling your iPad or iPhone in your car with a normal FM transmitter can be a pain in the butt. Controlling them through a device that plugs them into the AUX port on your car isn't any better typically.

iOS Accounts for 65% of Apple’s Current Sales

iOS Accounts for 65% of Apple’s Current Sales

That's monstrous.

Tangible Digital Music via C60 by IDEO

Tangible Digital Music via C60 by IDEO

If you're like me, and people call you a hipster because you collect records and still play music on your iPod instead of on your record player which you might or might not actually own, this will interest you severely. Behold a project that was born like all sweet industrial design projects are: as a concept. Inside the book "I Miss My Pencil" there was a project that became this reality: a surface, shaped to recall the size and shape of a record (or a stack of records, rather) or a record player, called C60 (Redux). In this project by IDEO, all you've got to do is place your music cards (the size of cassette tapes) down on the surface and your speakers (via your computer) will play the song you desire.
