Audio Explosion MP3 Player
MACROMEDIA DIRECTOR PROTOTYPE, XTRA
1998

DESCRIPTION

We developed UI prototypes for this MP3 player for startup Audio Explosion in 1998, before any other MP3 players were on the market, and long before the iPod. I designed the interface for the hardware device as well as a software piece to manage the music on the device, and created this prototype for the company to show to investors, partners and potential customers.

However, as a startup, the company was not able to compete with the more established device manufacturers (and later, Apple). Looking back at it now, there are surprising similarities to the early iPods.
