Sadly, there aren’t too many uses for the venerable record anymore. Record players are hard to find, even with the small vinyl revolution the hipsters helped fuel. Fortunately, Etsy user K Hessler isn’t throwing them away just yet. You can now buy one of Hessler’s mp3 speakers, each of which are mounted onto on old record. Outside of the novelty, the product is a standard speaker – plug the mp3 player into the speaker using the headphone port, turn the speakers on, and adjust the volume using the mp3 player. And, just to hammer the old-school, retro feel home, the speaker runs on a 9V battery.
You can cop the Record Amp and Speaker from Etsy for $45, plus $5.35 for shipping.
