Toc is one beautifully crafted record player, even if it does sort of look like an almond merged with a record. It was designed by Roy Harpaz. It spins the vinyl vertically rather than horizontally, but more importantly it looks amazing doing it.
A moving arm inside the shell contains the needle. The device can be controlled with a remote, or with LED touch buttons that are built into the front panel. There are very few record players that look this stylish. However, it gets better than just being a nice accessory to look at.
At this point, the Toc is still in the prototype phases, but there’s another vertical turntable currently raising funds on Kickstarter – it’s not as sleek, but it has a built in audio system.
