This great design hybrid turns an accessory into a portable music player.

Playbutton is a portable MP3 player contained in a wearable button. This patent pending device holds an entire album and comes complete with play, pause, skip and volume controls. It features a blank exterior that will be printed with each album's cover art, and a pin on the back that makes it simple to affix to clothing or a bag. These buttons are powered by a re-chargeable Lithium battery and are designed and manufactured by the New York-based company Parte LLC. Production is set to begin later this month.
