The iDeck: Album art lives on...

We all miss album cover art work, and the tiny digital cover art on your iPod just isn't the same. English designer, Michael Kennedy, has the answer that makes retro meet modern in a funked up way. iDeck is a touch screen music player that revitalizes album art and user interaction which has been lost in current mp3 format.

You simply dock your mp3 player into the base and use the touch screen to cycle through and select your tracks, flick it to skip, spin it to fast-forward and turn it to play. Then sit back and watch the album art play. From the Nirvana baby floating through to Gorillaz artwork of Jamie Hewlett, album art is back.

Thanks to Andy G of The Cool Hunter for the story.
