Vertical Record Player Gives Modern Functions to Retro Device

Israel-based designer Roy Harpaz has come up with an elegant and sleek new vertical design for a record player that effortlessly combines futuristic design and retro function in an egg-shaped package.

Unlike the traditional turntables we’re used to, this one plays the record vertically, almost putting it on display. By scanning through a record, the player can find different points in the song, allowing listeners to skip tracks. This, along with the remote, helps make it a more modern home device, though the wood panel on the front gives it a retro appeal nonetheless.

I have to admit that I get really annoyed when you disappoint me with inventions you say have been invented yet I cannot yet buy them or they're insanely expensive.

This is so cool. I figured record players weren't really even being made anymore, but little do I know... I have friends who love and collect vinyls, this would make a great gift!

This doesn't look like a safe way to play vinyl with a traditional stylus... can you say scratched records? ... unless it uses lasers or something else and I have seen compact players like this but you still have to lay them horizontally

Also, anybody who has and plays records knows that this thing is a weapon.
