Skip is a tangible interface for Spotify, which combines a versatile yet simple interface with the possibilities of online streaming. Inspired by the Zippo lighter, Skip is designed to be used on the go. It allows for two basic functions: first, one could discover new music, listening to the randomly proposed songs and skip the disliked ones by flipping the lid. Second, through pressing the lid down, one could download a song into the device, adding it to a playlist. Skipping songs and saving them through pushing the lid becomes an elegant sequence of actions, making such a basic interaction aesthetically compelling and pleasant.
