The appearance of this LED mp3 player is certainly contemporary, yet it doesn't integrate the lucid touchscreen that gets clearer each year and that consumers have grown to love. Instead of the vibrant colors and the fine details that you might expect from the display, this compact music machine is backlit with an LED light source that shines through minute perforations in the material.

The command icons, the symbols and the typography look surprisingly crisp as they scroll across the screen, featuring modern sans serif fonts with fine weights in large, legible sizes. Ted Renwick proposes a surface that's still touch-sensitive, so the Billet LED mp3 player would serve as a fresh gadget that appeals to technological separatists who don't use their phones for audio.
