The Story Drawer

Picture 2.jpg
The Story Drawer is an MP3 player with a difference: when you put an item inside it, it detects its presence with RFID and tells a story. Inventor Matthew Simpson:
Story Drawer has been designed as a counter to the current culture of products with heavy emphasis on the technology. I believe interactions with products should be more evocative and less convoluted. Story Drawer reflects this by combining refreshingly eloquent function with clean and refined aesthetics.
