Levitating Turntable

Meet the world´s first levitating turntable! Developed by MAG-LEV Audio the unique device is designed for people who appreciate high quality sound and innovative design. The gravity-defying record player visually enhances the experience of listening to vinyl records by levitating the platter. The drive system in this turntable is where all the magic is, not only does it have magnetic levitation, but it also maintains the incredibly precise turning of the platter with sensor regulating software. Air is the smoothest medium with least amount of friction, which further elevates this project into a truly unique listening experience. You can switch between 33,3-rpm and 45-rpm with just a turn of a button, and a subtle orange lighting gives the turntable a sleek, futuristic feel, and further enhances the visual effects of levitation even when the lights are off. watch the video below
