Tilt Sensing 'Pandora Alcantara'
- By: AymanMar 2, 2008
Believe it or not, some people still own CDs. Antoine Lebrun and Volkan Akbiyik designed Pandora Alcantara, a stylish wall-mounted CD player that tries to keep up with today's technologies by incorporating tilt sensing and touchscreens into the player. The remote control is a tilt sensing bar with a touchscreen that can be clipped to the wall mounted player when not in us. Leaving the bar vertical lets you control volume while the horizontal position lets you go thru tracks. Ooooh, high tech. As a final sexy touch, the player is covered in Alcantara - a super luxurious and expensive suede like material found only in exotic luxury cars and yachts.
