Oh man. I have never wanted a turntable so bad. This Star Wars portable record player is awesome. Spin your vinyl with the power of The Force. While this turntable really should have been released back in 1977, it’s here today.
Only in the 1970s could you find such a fruity stereo. Wait. Bananas are a fruit right? Or are they an herb? I have no idea now. I just know that this stereo is bananas.
This portable record player is shaped like a banana and what is even more bananas is that it could be played in any position.
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.
We’ve featured a record player made out of LEGO before, but that one was barely functional and resulted in a warped sound. This one made by Brickinside member Hayarobi is much better, because it can play at 33 1/3 rpm and 45 rpm.
I’m probably dating myself, but I still have a massive collection of old vinyl records gathering dust in bins in my closet. I actually no longer have a turntable, so other than the few records I purchased as CDs or in digital formats, I haven’t listened to them in a dog’s age.
LEGOs can be used to make all sorts of contraptions, but I never thought about making a record player out of them. But that hasn’t stopped numerous people from attempting the task over the years – as you’ll find if you do a search on YouTube.
You can take one look at my room (and entire house) and surmise with a glance that I don’t really have much room to spare with all the junk I have lying around the place. Old books, clothes, magazines, bags, shoes– you name it, it’s probably hanging (or perched) somewhere in my messy abode.
It looks like someone is taking the whole steampunk thing a bit too far with this steam-powered record player. Would you want one? Seriously, I wouldn’t. My Technics SL1200s does the job fine. However, this thing is still pretty amazing.
What you’re looking at here isn’t just a vintage record player. It’s actually a fully-functional gaming PC.
This old Bakelite Zenith record player has even had its turntable replaced with a visible DVD-ROM drive – which looks absolutely perfect with those Verbatim simulated vinyl CD-Rs.
Tokidoki has recently come out with a watch that looks like a turntable, and I’ll be the first to go on record as saying it looks fantastic.
The Tokidoki watch is presented in a much more tongue-in-cheek rendering than this other turntable-lookin’ watch.
For those of you who still have a stack of 33 vinyl ablums sitting around, but no longer have a turntable, I bring you Vinyl Killer….
Japanese company Razy-Works is selling this pint-sized VW bus that contains a needle, amplifier and speaker.
