Fans of the Spotify music service will love this cool Spotify Radio created by Jordi Parra, created as part of Jordi’s degree project, and basically it is a radio than can play Spotify play lists over WiFi.
As you will see in the video below, it features tiny RFID disks, these disks store in the information for each of the play lists, and when a new one is inserted into the radio it will play a new play list.
The concept is a standalone player that comes with 8 tags that can be linked to music. It can be for yourself, or to give it to somebody else as a present, giving you the chance to link music to the tags before giving it to that person… In a way, like we used to do with mixtapes, but now the “mixtapes” are RFID tags linked to music on Spotify.
Head on over to Jordi’s website, Zenona, for more details on the Spotify Radio, we hope some manufacturer picks this up and decides to put it into production.
