Sound Burger: Portable Record Player

Check out this bit of vintage portable audio, yeah CG is all about tech news but this is too cool. The Audio Technica AT-727 Sound Burger is a clamp-like 8″ record player which was apparently developed in response to Sony’s popular Walkman cassette player. The design is pretty neat as the majority of the record is free spinning outside of the player, but don’t expect this to work in your pocket. Or on the train. Or anywhere without a completely stable surface really. It’s cool to see how far we’ve come in terms of technology but really, no cover flow or podcast directory would render this thing pretty useless.
