  • Jukey
    Social Music Player
  • Recently, we’ve been toying with the idea of a device that would combine all the best elements of Spotify and Last.FM, but in a real world environment. So, the Vim & Vigor Team hunkered down and designed an elegant solution. Enter: Jukey.
  • Jukey joins social media with social life like never before. A jukebox re-envisioned for the 21st
    century, Jukey brings people together for a shared music listening experience that plays tunes
    that are sure to be a hit. Put simply, Jukey pools the favorite and most commonly occurring
    tracks on all devices connected to its network, and DJ’s from the songs that appear most often,
    guaranteeing a soundtrack that everyone present will love.
  • While Jukey’s magic is its ability to automatically create the perfect playlist, users retain the
    ability to “manually” DJ and control the music with their individual devices.
    In Auto, Jukey takes over the party and creates playlists based on one of three modes: genre,
    shue and popular songs. Users can then vote the song up or down, so Jukey can fine tune its
    choices.
    In manual mode, one or more DJ’s can choose the grooves. Other users can vote on the songs
    to let the DJ’s know how they are doing, determining the results of epic DJ battles.
    What’s more, friends who couldn’t make the party can still join in the fun. Playlists can be
    uploaded to social networks so that those who missed the party can not only attend virtually, but
    can DJ remotely as well. Later on, the fun can be relived by referring back to the same uploaded
    playlist. Users can go and download their new favorite songs, adding them to their own libraries
    for future listen

  • The Jukey system consists of hardware and the corresponding app. The hardware itself is a statement piece, minimal, interactive and intuitive.

    You’ll notice that Jukey does not have any physical buttons, aside from a power lock switch at the back. Instead it makes use of an accelerometer and a touch sensor in order to make the user interaction as simple and intuitive as possible. For example:

    • In an upright position Jukey is in stand-by mode

    • Tip it on its side, and it is ready to play music
    • Slide your hand on either edge to control volume
    • Rotate Jukey to the left to rewind, to the right to fast forward
