French designer Nicolas Cinguion has created a yo-yo-like MP3 player called the S.MP3.

Not only does its circular design allow for the headphone cable to be wrapped around, eliminating the hassle of tangled cords, but it's also an ultra-mobile portable media player.

To use the S.MP3, all you have to do is spin the player and play your music!

Implications - With the busy nature of current culture, people don't have the time or energy to be lugging around big and heavy devices. The smaller and more compact a gadget is, the more likely a consumer will be to buy the product and actually take it with them. Companies (especially those in electronics) need to keep looking for ways to make devices smaller and easier use for the average buyer.
