Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Wow and from Panasonic no less.... Having worked there as a consumer products design engineer, I will tell you that they were one of the most conservative in the industry when it comes to designs and packaging. Good job on this one!

though this is extremely cute and clever, and kudos to the product team for bending backwards to execute a designer's concept, i still believe this is a design innovation built on a creative platform pioneered by Apple - sleek, clean, minimal.

@CLOSETCASE: Which is precisely why I like it. It takes Apple's creative platform and does one better. (At least for one product; but can Panasonic maintain such packaging excellence? That remains to be seen.)
