The March Edition of DEVELOP3D will tell the story of how legendary Audio specialist, Bang and Olufsen develops products – specifically, the BeoSound 5, “a high-quality digital audio player that is intended to bridge the gap between the company’s high-end Hi-Fi systems and music stored digitally.

What blew me away was how the team is using tools at hand (from 3D CAD, rendering, but at a more fundamental level, gloriously lo-tech cardboard, Lego and bastardised components) to experiment and create a stunning product – and I just wanted to share this photo below.

B&O’s Oliver Wallington explains that “Although these prototypes are unlikely to win any design prizes, they can tell you a great deal about what is needed to ensure good functionality.
