A few week’s ago we showcased wooden records, which generated eery, ethereal music when played. Now, creative agency shine together with the fabricators gyro constructivists have created a device modeled off of Thomas Edison’s original phonograph design that generates music off of tiny grooves cut into a Beck’s beer bottle (is this going to become a running theme?).

  1. To tonearm is the venerable Rabco SL8E tangient tracking arm: a delightful arm that always seemed more like a tower crane than a tonearm to me. Love it anyway and still have one.
