Here’s an exotic prototype CD player in the shape of a phonograph. (This was actually created and not merely a render.) The designer, Yong Jieyu, dissembled a CD player and put the necessary components back together in the shape of a phonograph. Complete and utter madness, I know. The laser pickup is where the needle would be on a standard phono. Generally this is OK, but the oddball description—”the design seeks transport the user back to the golden age of phonographs in early 1900s where sound broadcasting had a magical feel”—leaves is a little bit of a turn off.
