Another brilliant design concept from Yanko Design. No, this is not meant to consummate your relationship with your media player! It's just a remote control. I hate to be the spoiler again, but I have to wonder if they can fit all the electronics and a battery in a ring that small.

Implications - Apple’s reign over tech design is undeniable. Designers are incorporating Apple’s slick aesthetic and use of the letter "i" into their own products to appeal to consumers who can’t get enough of Apple products. While designs like this are still concepts, the fact that they even exist as concepts indicates the power that one company has managed to secure in the realms of technology and design.
