Digital Media-Infused Wooden Blocks Will Be The Books Of The Future
Qleek lets people play songs and videos and share files and photos using wood Tapps.
In 2014 a major concern for everyone is saving space. In addition to the numerous storage units popping up in major cities, people are crazed over the thinnest phone and the lightest gadget, so naturally they also want to pack more things into less when it comes to their homes. For many of us, photo albums, CDs, and even books have become a thing of the past–we have smartphones and e-readers that allow us to store a greater quantity of these things in a more compact space. That being said, their is an intimacy that comes with holding a physical object; scanning a friend's bookshelf or a new acquaintance's CD collection, something we cannot get from a strictly digital world. Qleek is a new type of media player that combines the ease and compact nature of a digital collection with the physicality of objects, reinventing the idea of a bookshelf and adding a splash of personality to our homes.
