THE JUKEBOX IN A BISCUIT TIN
This is not a box of Hup Seng Cream Crackers. It is The Memory Sound Box, a rechargeable jukebox in a Hup Seng Cream Crackers tin. Designed by Yu Yah-Leng of design agency Foreign Policy Design Group and The Social Co., a collective that does charitable projects, it has 77 tracks from the ’60s to the late ’ 90s ( yup, they include songs by Teresa Teng, the Bee Gees, Stevie Wonder and The Beach Boys). To play, press any of the 18 buttons on the front. From http://thesocialco.sg for $500. Proceeds go entirely to the Alzheimer’s Disease Association.
Although no money is required to play the music, The Memory Sound Box has a side slot of the right size for 50-cent coins, which means the tin doubles as a piggy bank.
