    sounds like shit

  • haha it’s an experiment!

    • JB

      There’s a reason they started cutting vinyl. You don’t think they tried wood before? :)

  • j

    great musical choices!

  • jmsbwmn

    Far from practical, but still a cool idea!

  • Rain

    Wow. I’m actually pretty surprised by just how audible a laser engraving on wood is. It reminds me of a video that someone made using a 3D printer to create a record. Once again, not the best quality sounds but pretty sweet ideas. Gotta give them some credit.

  • Pete

    beautiful. Radiohead as played through a Victrola.

  • What is the second song?

    • G h

      Femme fatal – the Velvet Underground

  • That’s pretty awesome. Enjoy your copyright infringement letter.

    • That’s a joke btw…. Well I guess it’s not a joke if I have to say it’s a joke…. I’ll show myself the door.

  • I want this :O

  • Rob Richardson

    This is gonna cost you a fortune in needles : )

  • michelle
