Network Music Displayer : Using a Graphical User Interface on a Personal Music Player
Keyword(s): personal music player; network; digital music collection; microdisplay
Abstract: A design exploration was conducted to understand how people could interact with a music collection held digitally. This was achieved by focusing on designing a networked music player for young actives. Young actives have a busy, outdoor lifestyle. In this context, in particular, young actives have a low tolerance for complex interfaces. An easy to use and intuitive interface had to be blended with a compelling functional package. The result is a concept for a music displayer: a personal network player that smartly uses a microdisplay to allow users to browse quickly through a large collection of music in a visually stimulating way.
