CD players were the hot item back in the dark ages of the 90’s. These days its all about the iPhone and mobile media. The Pandora CD Player concept attempts to bring a modern ascetic to the compact disk, using a remote control with accelerometer tilt technology.
When the remote is held vertically you can control the volume of the music, with horizonal positioning changing the remotes interface to a track navigation screen. Plus, you get the perk of being able to tell people you have a CD player which is totally decked out in Alcantara, a super luxurious suede most commenly used in high-end cars and yachts.
