More to the point: ask anyone who has worked in a machine shop. The essence of a CVT has been around for many generations in certain machine tools. Modern cars use a CVT that while remaining functionally the same are quite different in actual operation; but a MP3's CVT would have been quite familiar to somebody changing the head belt in a 1940's industrial drill press.
