The Walnut Player from YuKwang Kang is an odd looking MP3 player designed with the blind in mind. This MP3 player is charged by rolling it around in your hand; the kinetic energy created charges the on-board battery.

The Walnut Player also caters to the blind, with all if its functions being written in braille. There are a growing number of designers that are starting to cater towards the visually impaired now, as evidenced by the flood of concept devices with braille or tactile interfaces.
