Teenage Engineering DIY Styrofoam Turntable Kit

I’m fascinated by this turntable designed by Teenage Engineering. It’s lightweight/portable and the whole unit is made out of high density Styrofoam (even the tonearm). I could really use one of these on my record digging trips. Unfortunately it will not be produced and only one unit was built for research purpose.

Teenage Engineering OP-1 Pocket Synthesizer and Controller

Teenage Engineering is currently working on the OP-1 Synthesizer. This thing sounds amazing. It doubles as a Midi controller and boasts 8 synthesizer models, 8 samplers, on board effects, and a sequencer. Just look at all those cool knobs!

The prototype Styrofoam Turntable looks really good and I can’t blame you why you wanted to have one :) but don’t lose hope, there’s a caption in their website that you may contact them if you think they really need to manufacture.

that would look great next to my vintage B&O..

oh man, how convenient would be to get a battery powered of those and go to vynil stores and try albums before you buy them?
that would be wonderful

great post, grain edit is my favorite website :D

wow, i never thought i’d see teenage engineering stuff on this blog, but it makes sense. i’ve been signed up for that op-1 for a few months and i’m really hoping i’m in there to be a beta tester. it’s like a casio sk-1, at least size wise, but 15,000 times cooler (and probably that many times more expensive).
