tired of waiting....

I swear, I dreamed of this the other night.

A 3D printed record.

Many thanks to Boing Boing for giving me a glimpse of the future of record collecting. Let me know when I can print out a copy of Howlin' Wolf's, unreleased at the time, 5 minute and 40 second long recording of "Tired Of Crying"......preferably on a deep groove 12in 45.

    I thought this was the future?

  2. Colby...I've seen the clip before, it's very beautiful. However, it's been pointed out elsewhere that the wooden platter is not actually being played...it's being used as a trigger for a midi program, which is what creates the piano sound.

    Because the sounds are variable according to computer settings, I think the wooden disk/turntable set up qualifies as a musical instrument rather than the simple playing of a recording.
