A few week’s ago we showcased wooden records, which generated eery, ethereal music when played. Now, creative agency shine together with the fabricators gyro constructivists have created a device modeled off of Thomas Edison’s original phonograph design that generates music off of tiny grooves cut into a Beck’s beer bottle (is this going to become a running theme?).


The Beck’s Edison Bottle.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. To tonearm is the venerable Rabco SL8E tangient tracking arm: a delightful arm that always seemed more like a tower crane than a tonearm to me. Love it anyway and still have one.
