Beautifully designed new music player learns your personal tastes

It seems inevitable now that all future technology will require us to interact with it in a much more direct way – by chatting to it and letting it learn from our behaviours. This happens in the online sphere already, but there’s very little in my home that I can command with my voice or expect to understand my tastes. Not so with Aether Cone, a new thinking music player that you control by speaking to it and which can learn your musical and general audio preferences every time you use it.

The beautifully simple conical object connects to Rdio’s library of 30 million songs, Stitchr’s 25,000-strong archive of podcasts and thousands of online radio stations, all of which you can access just by chatting to your Cone. Looks good, sounds excellent and you don’t even have to use your hands to operate it. Job done.
