JoyRide Music Player


JoyRide is a concept for an in-car music player based on emotion and social behavior. The idea is to take the current passive music experience and make it active, personalized, and fun. The system consists of a personal music pass, in-car mood board, and at-home music journal. These three objects interact to create dynamic playlists for car trips based on mood, location, and who you're with. They also allow you to log your trips and playlists so that you can record your personal soundtrack over time.
