NEW YORK (Hypebot) – Why just play a record when you can wear it too?
That’s the thinking behind an emerging company called PlayButton.
They’re going to sell wearable buttons that play music.
The content can’t be changed or downloaded. Each button has play and skip controls, they’re powered by a re-chargeable lithium battery.
In November of 2010 they will start taking orders. This looks like a great way to make the digital graspable. But also, depending on production costs, it might also allow bands to sell their albums in a fun, perhaps cheaper manner to fans.
