MP3 Pebbles

The authors behind the upcoming book Nonobject, has release yet another innovative example of cool products. This time it is a MP3 player designed to look like pebbles.

What if products could take on the diversity of nature? What if products embodied twists and contours, and off-colored spots? What if a line of MP3 players, say, could be designed to resemble an array of pebbles scattered along an ocean's shore? Or like a basketful of heirloom tomatoes at a farmers' market? Imagine the possibilities of mass customizing with such diversity in mind How would it change the way we interact with devices? How would it change the experience of consumption? How would it impact the human-product relationship?

- the book nonobject

This looks to be a really good book - I am definitely going to buy it when it is released later this year.
