I’ve always loved Kickstarter. Just the range of ideas — not even limited to spectrum of the sublime to the ridiculous — continues to astound and inspire me.
Not long after I started this wee blog (so, about three weeks ago) I came across a project where engineers from London want to put together a crazy-cool turntable that figures out what you’re listening to and connects to a range of devices.
It’s called the Gearbox Automatic Turntable and you need to back it, right now (assuming you’re reading this before 1 February)!
- it’s going to be made in the UK
- the components are going to be high quality
- it has a compact footprint and sweet design
- there’s nothing else out there that combines analogue and digital in this manner
- because you should! (I mean, just look at it).
Plus, they’ve got some cool backers’ rewards including lots of free vinyl. So, basically, you’ve got nothing to lose.
