The Ultimate Music Box: KDDI AU unveils transforming concept phone

Always keeping one eye on the future, Japan's KDDI AU Design Project has a fresh batch of concept devices on display in Tokyo. Perhaps the most intriguing of the bunch is a phone called the Box To Play. The sleek concept phone combines a cell phone (with all the normal calling and camera features you'd expect) along with a sort of music device which appears to include a tiny embedded turntable that allows you to scratch the music playing on the phone.

In addition to the music features, the phone also plays with design by transforming into a box with a graphic music interface. Still photos and colorful descriptions simply can't do justice to how cool this phone looks, so go check out the video of the Box To Play in action here.
