Mint Cube, a retro MP3 Player designed exclusively for Men by Mintpass

“Men commonly prefer convenience over fanciness” was the main idea I had in mind while designing Mint Cube, says the designer of Mint Cube. Thus, although this little retro device (50mm x 50mm x 50mm) features three analog displays with needles located in the front and on the sides to indicate volume, FM radio frequency and battery capacity respectively along with a touch of nostalgia for cassette players with ten analog buttons on the top, it also has the great convenience of our times: Bluetooth.

Unfortunately no info regarding release date or price.

    Nice! The analog needles and buttons are a lovely touch. I like the retro-feel of the Mint Cube as well. One thing though. How are you supposed to sift through your MP3 collection with this thing? Or is this another blind “shuffle”?
