Conceived by South Korean designer Won Chan Lee, the “Velosonix” is a music player intended toward bicycle riders to let them enjoy their favorite tracks on the go. Deriving its name from the French word “velo” and English word “sonic” meaning the bicycle sound, the futuristic music player presents a unique combination of EZ-Installation, EZ-Interface and superior aerodynamics. Replacing the bracket that requires tools with rubber o-rings for easy mounting and dismounting on handlebars, the Velosonix also features a joystick to allow easy controls on the move, while horn-shaped speakers pointing forward reduce the air resistance.
Powered by a Li-ion battery, the ergonomic music player comes with an LED on/off indicator and USB connection for charging and data transfer. The Velosonix supports a wide range of music formats that includes MP3 and WMA files, which can be stored in the device’s 4GB onboard memory. To make the device safe for riders, the player doesn’t include any LCD display but features a Shuffle mode that allows the user to play music files randomly.
