This paper record player will blow your mind

Wouldn’t it be nice if hands could be extensions of gramophones, and gramophones made of paper? OK, consider it done. This paper record player by artist-designer Kelli Anderson is so incredible, we can’t even describe it. Basically all you have to do is to flip a page, make a fold, position a needle, then give the contraption a friendly kinetic spin with your hand. That’s it. Mind. Blown.
