Vertical Vinyl.


Introducing “o-ton”, a vertical, wireless turntable which lets you import and digitally enhance your vinyl records. It’s almost entirely translucent, so you can see all the inner workings and, of course, your vinyl’s unique cover art. The design features a digital stylus that automatically turns your device on if you insert a vinyl. With an integrated optical sensor, the stylus can identify and jump individual tracks. Simply plug it in, pair your device, insert a vinyl, select your speaker and dance.

Engineers at AIO robotics have developed a solution that will now allow users to 3D scan, 3D print, 3D copy, and 3D fax objects from one device. Entitled ‘ZEUS’, the all-in-one electronic device is constructed out of aluminum, powder-coated in a moonstone white, with black anodized side panels. the inclusion of a 7-inch touchscreen gives the machine a welcoming ‘consumer ready’ look. Instead of usin plastic or wood, all linear components are also built using CNC-machined aluminum, including the XYZ-carrier, turntable and external shell. The structure of the 3D copy machine dramatically increases the quality of the prints, preventing deformation and heat soaking. ZEUS is capable of outputting a layer resolution of 100 microns (200 & 300 options available for faster prints) and can print in volumes up to 26cm x 18cm x 15cm in PLA.

DJ’s Eye View.


In a mesmerizing point-of-view video, DJ Angelo demonstrates the intricate process of blending tracks from seven vinyl records. “Turntablism” was coined, apparently, to distinguish between a DJ who simply plays full records and a DJ who manipulates their sounds in various ways. It’s pretty amazing to see the various elements of the track come together over time, so make sure to watch full screen, with the sound up.

Linos


The majority may be hooked to their digital players but there plenty of old-schoolers who hang on to their vinyl for dear life. Trying to appease this segment is “Linos”, a portable record player. Ditching the traditional full platter configuration for modern sensibilities, this player takes into consideration the space demands and limited mobility of regular turntables. Simply load the record to the lower spindle element and lock it into place from above. Pushing down on the power icon then releases the tonearm and spins up the record. Hook up the player to your comp via micro USB for sound and powering or use the USB power adapter with standard stereo jack output.
