Ancestors of the iPod?

I spotted these coin displays at the U.S. Mint in New Orleans, LA and Veken & I couldn’t help but think they look a hell of a lot like today’s iPod.

    That reminds me that IPods look a lot like voltmeters.

    Off topic: Are you involved with the Brooklyn Rail? If so, good on you.

    It’s crazy how occasionally one come across items that could have/perhaps did, serve as the genesis for items that then become ubiquitous.

    I once stumbled across the published sketchbook of an artist from the 60s-70s whose drawings look suspiciously similar to Jonathan Adler’s animal menagerie.

    Funny how things like that happen…

    hv: I read it occasionally. I read it regularly when I lived in Brooklyn.
