I build these three audio players for an exhibition by Schweppenhaüser/Thomsen & Morten Søndergaard.

The design objective was to make an audio file player that would start looping the whole with absolutely no possibility for user interaction except for putting on the headphones or taking them off. And it is a great idea – it is not about empowering the user through advanced, control options and features – it’s about setting the user free to focus on what matters.

Materials:
– Arduino Pro Micro (clone)
– Catalex yx5300 audio playback board
– microsd card
– 10k trimmer pot (for volume calibration)
– 4mm & 18mm birch plywood
– wax
– screws, nuts, washers
