Play vinyl records with your smartphone

Everyone loves vinyl right now, but not everyone can just throw one on a handy turn-table. Let’s face it, most offices don’t really have that kind of vintage tech anymore. But that didn’t stop German dance label Kontor Records from mailing out some super sweet, orange vinyl LPs to their target agencies.

Each vinyl record came with a 2D ‘record player’ and QR code which enabled the recipient’s smartphone to act as a record player. Watch this video to see it in action!

The concept is super cool. I really hope this hits the mainstream market. I’d love to buy the next Kanye album on smartphone vinyl.
