RokBlok – World’s smallest vinyl record player with wireless speakers

RokBlok Record Player 2

San Francisco-based concept company Pink Donut is offering RokBlok to backers on Kickstarter, which the maker claims to be the world’s smallest wireless vinyl record player. It can play records anywhere on almost any surface that can hold a vinyl record because it plays records by lightly riding on top of them instead of working like traditional gramophone. That means, it doesn’t need a specific surface to hold a record and it can be carried in pocket. In brief, it’s a small box that plays records when placed over the records and connects wirelessly to bluetooth speakers or headphones.  It’ll work anywhere within a range of 30 feet. Read More…
