The Best CD case insert… ever.
I’ve always been a fan of creative CD packaging, but Moldover’s Awesome Edition CD just blew my mind.
The CD insert is actually a circuit board that lists all the tracks and artist information – cool enough, but there’s more. This circuit board has a headphone jack on it and a light sensor, and it acts as a fully-functioning theremin!
To work it, you press a button with one hand, and wave your other hand in front of the light sense. It’s expensive ($50), but he also has a mini-edition for significantly less.
“Moldover’s new CD, over 3 years in the making, not only delivers gorgeously diverse music with meaning and musical mastery, it completely redefines what it means to “play an album”… Moldover’s CD packaging itself IS a new musical instrument! The CD is mounted on a custom designed circuit board, intricately patterned and powering a “light-Theremin”. Yes! You play the artwork and it makes sound! Only the musical supervillain genius of Moldover could develop something so stunningly innovative.”
