Sony Rolly Footage
Sony's mysterious Rolly jukebox has been confirmed, courtesy of a promo video for the player found by Engadget. While many of its details are still unknown, the player appears designed to react with its own movement in time with the music, rolling on a table or the floor through body-sized wheels and opening its speaker covers. The device would also pulse different colors at the same time, according to the video.
Flash memory for storage and support for AAC and MP3 music are the most likely features of Rolly, which still goes without an official release date. Sony currently has a teaser site for the player and has been holding a contest for Japanese customers to attend an event on September 10th, which may represent the actual launch of the device in the country.
