Don’t you just love ‘Kickstarter’? The crowd funding site exposed a new product that would easily change the way people play their records. Introducing ‘Floating Record, The Vertical Turntable‘. Not like your usual turntable, this one plays your favorite records as they spin vertically, creating a nice way to show off your collection and to play music in style. The product, developed by ‘Gramovox’ is already in motion as it was funded quickly and now a quarter of a million dollars already been raised. Click play to see how it works.
According to the company, ‘The Floating Record is a high-performance turntable that plays your records vertically through built-in, dynamic, full-range stereo speakers (or via RCA line out). We reimagined turntable technology that uses audiophile-grade materials and components. The result is a visually and mechanically sound way to experience vinyl music.
“Our design philosophy is to reimagine vintage audio design with modern technology. In this spirit, we sought to reimagine the record player. We yearned for a visceral vinyl experience that showcased the record as both art and a medium to produce analog sound. The result is a high-performance turntable that plays your records vertically—producing the illusion that it’s floating”.
