mixtape meets 2011, RFID plus spotify plus jordi parra

Here’s a neat concept that we’re hoping finds it way to production: a standalone player that comes with 8 RFID tags that can be linked to music. The idea is the little tags could be playlists and when affixed to the stand alone player would bring up that playlist. It’s a simple enough idea that harkens back to cassette tapes and custom mixes.

The concept is the brainchild of Jordi Parra and was his degree project. How he’ll bring this to market is currently unknown. A Kickstarter project was mentioned as a possibility.
