What if we could touch our music again?

Also: SoundCards, music trading-cards that link you to music in the cloud.

  • Many people have a physical connection with their music. These people like to organize, display and interact with their music via the containers (album covers, cd cases).
  • Music is a highly social medium. People enjoy sharing music with others. People learn about new music from others in their social circle.
  • The location where music is stored will likely switch from devices managed by the listener to devices managed by a music service. In the future, a music purchaser will purchase the right to listen to a particular song, while the actual music data will remain managed by the music service.

Finally: Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibash built a lighting sequencer that uses RFID-enabled cards to control lighting and sounds.
