Qleek is an interesting concept, where it allows you to turn on your favorite playlist or genre of music through the use of wooden blocks.  This is a very interesting idea dreamed up by Pierre-Rudolf Gerlach and a team of co-creators in Warsaw, Poland that is now pursuing funding through the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.
