An interaction design student from Sweden's Umea Institute of Design did this home music player for Spotify, seen above. Reportedly done in collaboration with that company, it allows you to play music by sticking a magnetic RFID tag linked to one of your playlists onto the volume knob; a reader embedded in the player identifies the tag and the appropriate music comes out of the speaker.
That's all fine and good. What we take exception to is the assertion that this device "looks like a digital lovechild of Jonathan Ive and the brilliant Swedes at Ikea."
Oh, really? Is that what it looks like?
