Void LP Player – the coolest record player in the universe

Voidlpplayer

This Void LP Player concept from Rhea Jeong comprises a magnetic levitating disc carrier plus a small self contained player ball with integrated needle, amplifier and speaker all wrapped up in a nice designer coating. It’s one of those products it would be worth ruining an old album for, just to see the look of astonishment on people’s faces.

 The record player uses a carrier and dock outfitted with a magnetic and auto-calibrating control system which carries the LP into thin air as it is playing music. a self-running record player shaped in the form of a red sphere, contains a needle, amplifier and speaker, spins around the record, bringing the music to life. The sphere that plays the vinyl was technically influenced by the ‘vinyl killer’, currently the world’s smallest LP player that has a built-in motor, amplifier and speaker.
