Designer Chris Patty decided to make this Christmas little more special for his dad with a homemade jukebox. Now the highlight of this jukebox is that it plays songs with swipe-able physical song cards.

Inside, there's a Raspberry Pi with Patty's software. All the songs are stored locally on an SD card and are pulled up whenever their associated card is swiped, The Verge reported.
