Introducing Qleek. This Could Bring Music Back to the Future.

It’s called Qleek, a product from Ozenge, a tech start-up based in Paris.  At first glance, this looks like a doomed attempt to return people to the days of having to handle vinyl and CDs as part of the listening experience. But on closer inspection, there’s much more going on here.

Qleek is dealing with an Internet of Things situation that involves new ideas of how we interact with computers.  Watch the video and then go in-depth with this article from Quartz.  There might be a germ of an idea here.

Anyone else reminded of the data cartridges they used on the original Star Trek?  (Thanks to Rupinder for the link.)
