THIS IS A CONCEPT



After seeing a design by VakiNakamura I got inspired to create a similar idea, here's where I originally saw it: vakinakamura.deviantart.com/jo… Credit where credit is due, it was a great idea. :)

:bulletblue: IDK what pre-existing media player app it would work best for, but some of it is inspired off of Windows 10's new design.
:bulletgreen: The idea here is relatively simple: a fresh, bold new design idea for a generic media player.
:bulletblue: I realize the concept is not very conventional, and may seem a bit bulky; but I feel it's a stylish and potentially solid idea for a minimalistic UI.
:bulletgreen: It is made to be used well with both mouse/keyboard and touch... at least that's my goal haha

What do you think of the concept? :)

Sorry if the background isn't super great looking XD

Simple but definitely sounds like it'd be effective :)

Just to make it crystal clear: I DID NOT come up with the idea of the circular player. All the credits go to the original author (which is unknown for me) of this Moto 360 concept:

All I did was analyzing the image, recreating some UI elements (buttons, etc.) in PS and putting it all together as a RM skin. Nothing more.

About your concept - to be honest, I don't like it. The mix of circular control panel and normal rectangle for the video, playlist or other elements just doesn't feel right. But that's me.
