Anyone who really listens to vinyl knows the medium is far from dead. But convincing others of its appeal can be an uphill battle. For one thing, there's the gear: A quality record player takes up a lot more space than, say, a smartphone packed with thousands of streaming songs at the ready. But here's where RokBlok: The World's Smallest Record Player excels. It not only makes your listening party portable but a heck of a lot more fun.
What we have here is essentially an audiophile's robot buddy. Lay any 33 1/3 or 45 RPM record on a flat surface, and the RokBlok roves around on top of it with vinyl-safe rubber wheels, playing the songs through its own built-in speaker. Made of bamboo and MDF, it's smaller than a record itself at just 2" x 4", which means you can take it anywhere. And if you want a sound boost, it can transmit to Bluetooth-enabled speakers within 30 feet.
Right now, you can pick up the RokBlok for $99.
