World’s First Magnetic Levitating Record Player is On It’s Way

For spinning records on zero Gravity might soon become not only a dream of a Star Trek fan. This Slovenian Kickstarter is about to reach 500 thousand dollars for their First Magnetic Levitating Record Player project. MAG-LEV is a turntable whose platter magnetically floats in the air during playback. Just one month ago a Slovenian developer started their campaign to fund $300.000 for developing this idea and the goal was quickly reached.  ‘We believe that how you listen to music is sometimes just as important as what you listen to.’ Well we do too, and, to be honest, if not beautifully designed these turntables ...

Video: Man Turns Tortilla Into Record

Just recently we saw this incredible looking record player, a paper midi controller, and a solar-powered speaker neatly built inside a trash bin. We can add a new one to the list, as a man who has probably watched this funny video of a tortilla spinning on a turntable, thought to himself that he could probably do a lot better in turning food into music.
