Music for Families at Play


Parents and children, though intimately related, have vastly different needs. How can one device please both groups? Parents don't want to use a child's toy, and children can't use music players designed for adults.

Our group set out to design a device to bridge this divide. A device that offers enough control for adults, but is simple enough for a child. A device parents are willing to have in their house, but that children want to interact with.

Our result is the PlayPad, a single device with different context-dependent interfaces.
