Unlike a CD, there is a certain hypnotic effect in watching a vinyl record spin as it plays. Most record players only allow for horizontal playback while keeping your record enclosed in a lid to protect it from dust.
Gramavox has designed a stylish new record player which allows you to play your records vertically and they call it "Floating Record." The player is capable of outputting full-range stereo and comes with built-in speakers in a walnut or maple finish.
The project appeared on Kickstarter back in July and by the end of the month managed to raise 1.5 million dollars. They are currently accepting orders and units are expected to be shipped in December of this year.
