Abstract: We introduce REELY, a music player for setting time based on constraint and a physical interface based on old cassette tapes. REELY is based on a concept of a counter-functional things that limits some of its own functionality. Our system restricts essential function of modern music player such as 'listening time', in particular infinite consumption of music. This device expected find a new value and experience through time limitations.
