Hello, good afternoon, yes, sorry for the bother, but...
Someone needs to make this, please? So that I might give them all the money.
@CyberpunkLibrarian if I can have a credit card sized device that has wireless, a screen, inputs, and USB support, this can absolutely happen 😯
And I want one too 🎧
@CyberpunkLibrarian I'd buy
@CyberpunkLibrarian That is so cool. I would buy it too.
It suggests you can put it in your pocket, because it's foldable, but you would actually push buttons and move sliders all the time 😅 maybe it should fold differently, so that the playlist faces outward and all the buttons are covered 🤔
With decent sound and long battery life, I'd definitely buy it. I would love to have an mp3 player again instead of wasting my phone's memory and battery...
@CyberpunkLibrarian There must be a way to do this with three cell phones and a clever snaking case. Could be synchronized in software (e.g. over WiFi), but I'm not sure which device would be used for output. Personally, it's a neat graphic idea (taking something traditionally 2D and making it 3D), but I don't see any value in such a product. An app would be neat. A skin for VLC (or something) would be more realistic.
@hex Value is subjective. I figure this thing has the nostalgia thing going for it and it would probably sell just as well, if not better, than those mini consoles that were so big a while back! 😃
@CyberpunkLibrarian And the moment I saw this I heard the llama clip in my head
@Rasp There would have to be some kind of "llama edition" for a product like this. 😃
@CyberpunkLibrarian might want to replace the displays with eink ones, especially the playlist, to improve its battery life. :)
(Though screen updates are probably too slow for the visualiser.)
@FiXato YOU ARE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE.
But then again, I love eInk in a way that some might consider to be... unhealthy. 😅
It really whips and snaps together to fit the Llama's (-snip).
@CyberpunkLibrarian shit I can just FEEL the crowdfund waiting to happen
@CyberpunkLibrarian @mgrondin So cool! For reference, this is made by Julien Rivoire. https://twitter.com/rivoire_julien/status/1387689438210318337?s=21
It somehow reminds me of this: https://twitter.com/mrcatacroquer/status/1386318806411325440 (sorry for the twitter link) :)
@CyberpunkLibrarian the only Windows program that I miss
@CyberpunkLibrarian wow, skins would get so expensive, so quickly
@CyberpunkLibrarian Haha yes, I need it!
@CyberpunkLibrarian I wonder what the eject button does.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
