The Rafl Wireless Speaker offers a unique music listening experience that depends entirely on the users level of interactivity with it. Shaped like a sack, the designer behind the concept has likened it to a candy jar, explaining, "Just like fumbling in a candy jar in order to find their favorite one, users can pick up a music using their fingers." Although picking up a music is physically impossible, the point is that the Rafl Wireless Speaker relies on anticipation and surprise to delight its users.

Conceived by Korean designer Kihwan Joo, the Rafl Wireless Speaker responds to touches, covers, flicks and more. Each type of contact elicits a different response while encouraging a emotional connection with the speaker. Stats for Sack-Like Music Players Trending: Older & Chilly
