Blinged-out grills may be so early 2000s, but that might all change thanks to the Play-A-Grill. A high-tech version of the bejeweled mouthpieces often associated with hardcore rappers, hip hop artists and wannabe thugs, it plays music--perhaps even from the artists that inspired the rise of these grills in the first place.
Conceived and invented by artist Aisen Caro Chacin, a student at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, she writes that the Play-A-Grill "presents a perfect opportunity to merge an arbitrary music fashion object and reintroduce it as the music player itself." Controlled by the tongue, the Play-A-Grill is equipped with a vibrating motor that is strong enough for people to hear the music through their skulls.
