Sometimes, the days of holding a good old CD case in our hands as we listen to an album makes us yearn for simpler times when MP3 players only held a few gigs of data. This concept by David Friedman mixes the modern technology of digital displays, high powered PMP systems, and the days of old jewel CD case, to offer up a solution for those nostalgic times.
The digital jewel box would synchronize with iTunes and display album art and linear notes as you listened to your music. Just like the days you used to go out and buy an album on Tuesday, only to come home and pour over the liner notes as you listened to your newly acquired album. The concept would also double as an infrared remote, allowing you to control the song and to preview the next albums track list. — Andrew Dobrow
