Naoto Fukasawa's CD player for MUJI: Better Late than Never?

The Muji wall mounted CD player is hardly new. Almost 10 years old in fact. Previously, we had seen it during our travels in Europe and Asia, but never in the US. Until now.

With the simplest of mechanisms, all you do is pull the string to start the disc spinning, we still find ourselves wanting one for our bedroom. An art piece and CD player in one, it's just too bad the CD is going the way of the record. Actually, who cares. Vinyl can still get a stylish player, why not CD's too?

Get it here for $178.
