Turn it to tune in
TURN > TUNE > LISTEN
Explore Wheel is an exploratory venture into a possible future of music interfaces. It encourages a simpler view of a traditional radio tuning experience applied to digital music.
ALL IN THE EAR
It is built for blind navigation and delivers same experience whether you see the display or not.
The interface has only two levels in the UI: Albums and Songs. Everything is arranged linearly because the user finds and enjoys music through listening instead of visual browsing.
BROWSING THROUGH ALBUMS
Every circle represents an album. There is no level for artists since same artists' albums are clustered together.
BROWSING THROUGH SONGS
Inside every album, the songs are represented by rounded rectangles. You can scrub through a song by turning the wheel right or left. When you give the wheel a quick turn, you jump to another song.
No numbers, just the music.
SWING IT FOR NEXT SONG
Playful gestures for shuffling and skipping songs.
Special thanks to Klas Tauberman for the visual design.
