SPECIAL MENTION: Stem Player is a touch-sensitive music player and remixer that splits songs into vocals, drums, bass, and samples, allowing users to isolate and remix component parts, with functionality for looping, reversing, and changing pitch and speed. It is pebble-like in shape with four haptic “stems” of light—each representing a piece of the song.
