The 'RokBlok' Plays Vinyls by Running in Circles Over Them

The RokBlok is a revolution in the world of vinyl on par with Einstein's revelatory scientific discoveries. In the early 20th century, Einstein came up with the concept of time and space as relative concepts. Now, the RokBlok brings relativity to vinyl.

With every other record player on the market, the concept is straightforward: the player uses a motor to rotate the vinyl, thus causing the stationary stylus to play the music embedded in the grooves. But as long as one of those bodies moves relative to the other, music will still play. RokBlok reverses the movement, causing the stylus as well as the entire record player to move over the stationary vinyl.

To play music with RokBlok, conusmers simply place it on top of a vinyl, set the stylus into the vinyl's groove, and activate it. RokBlok will then drive around the vinyl at the right speed (either 45 or 33 1/2 RPM.)
