Portable DVD Player Takes Old Concept For A Spin

Remember the concept for the tiny clip-inspired portable music player that supports CD and MP3 files?

Turns out there is a pretty similar concept out there by designer Yeon-shin Seung that plays DVDs. You insert your DVD the same way you would on the CD and MP3 player, but a little display pops up to reveal your content.

I love the design and idea, but don't think it's all that practical or ready for mainstream consumers, who generally purchase portable DVD players for children and travel. No one needs their DVDs exposed while dealing with tippy cups of orange juice and Cheerios. For a closer look at the device,

the only problem i see besides the unprotected DVD is sound. the spinning DVD will make noise. probably kind of a lot. which means a motor or computer motor of sorts will make noise too. and then the speaker is directly above it? and BEHIND THE screen? probably would get more sound for the drivers than the kids if it was in the car.

I can imagine ruining many DVDs with this device. That screen could have some practical uses though.

I agree, it's totally cute and innovative, but not practical.
