So you’ve taken up digital DJing. You have a hard drive full of great MP3s. You’re cutting, scratching, looping, searching and mixing your digital collection like a pro. Only one issue remains: What are you going to do with all that old vinyl?
Number six in our ongoing series of suggestions is this: Instead of selling your old records, why not keep a few of them and dig them out to impress people at dinner parties in years to come by playing them on the incredible floating turntable?
Designer Rhea Jeong has invented this novel device. The base elevates the record, and the red blob is needle, amplifier and speaker all in one.
No doubt it sounds terrible, and I’d love to see someone try to DJ using two of them, but hey, it’s a talking piece for years to come when vinyl will become a novelty.
It’s also something to dig out when your kids ask: “What are those round black things at the back of the wardrobe, daddy?”
