RokBlok: A Portable Record Player Like No Other

RokBlok

The phrase “portable record player” is generally one that should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, given the inherent size and number of moving parts necessary to play a record in the first place, let alone with any vestige of sound quality. Now, there’s a new portable record player that dispenses with many of the problems baked into the form by way of an extremely novel design: It’s RokBlok.

Believe it or not, RokBlok plays records by riding around them like some kind of musical Roomba. It has built-in speakers, but if the thought of listening to them already makes you dizzy, you’ll be glad to know it’s also connectable to Bluetooth speakers or headphones for a more stable listening experience.

The RokBlok can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter here starting at $59 and up. Hopefully, a version that rolls around the surfaces of CDs at light speed is forthcoming.
