Confucius said that “Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” Today, this need is most commonly fulfilled by the Mp3player. The Korean word ‘Tok-Tak’ refers to the ‘clicking’ sound made when turning the player on and off. As the first glance the Mp3player seems invisible. It may seem as though the user has only his/her headphones. Tok-Tak’s compact and light weight design allows it to hang from the user’s ears, therefore eliminating excess wire and leaving the user free and more mobile. With the simple analogue connection and obvious controls, anyone can click to their hearts content. Compared to other Mp3players, Tok-Tak does not have many functions. It provides a simple, comfortable and very portable way to instantly experience the pleasure of sound.
