Pebble MP3 Player: The Have-Nots Finally Design an MP3 Player for the Masses


“What if a line of MP3 players, say, could be designed to resemble an array of pebbles scattered along an ocean’s shore?” I don’t know, Davey, but clearly someone wants to find out.

The rest of the designer’s description of the Pebble reads like some 19th century political manifesto: “The state of things now: sameness sits on assembly lines; sameness lives on shelves; sameness is in hands of consumers. Need it be this way – where color is the only distinguishing feature?” Frankly, I agree with him. Why does color (which we go crazy over) have to be the only distinguishing thing in products nowadays.
