Xraydio 2 Disc Table 
Diesel for Moroso
This coffee table is almost as cute as my boombox throw pillow… It’s made by printing the X-ray of a dj console on glass. The glass is still transparent, which adds dimension. I’m thinking it’ll look fresh in my record room.

The little guy pictured above is a Linos Portable USB vinyl record player (never would have guessed it). How does it work, you ask?
Hook the wire into your computer. The bar has two parts. Take out the bottom base, place the long play album or single on top, and then sandwich it with the overarching top. To start playing, move the player arm into position. Bananas, right? Pop it in your pocket and you’re good to go (so long as you have a computer or something that accepts a USB cord handy).
Probably not the best option for that $200 impossibly rare mint copy, but cool beans for that $1.99 joint. Definitely a fun choice for a beginning collector.
thanks to Gizmodo for the info.

according to creator Simon Elvins (a UK-based artist),
Fully working, manual record player made entirely of paper. To play the record the
handle needs to be turned in a clockwise direction at a steady 331/3rpm. The paper cone
then acts as a pickup, amplifying the sound enough to make it audible. (Record shown,
The Sound of Music 1965).
Amazing. A recyclable Victrola.
