RokBlok: A Tiny Record Player that Drives Around On Your LP

There’s this dichotomy in woodworking about bringing the work to the tool (i.e. using a tablesaw) versus bringing the tool to the work (i.e. using a handsaw). A company called Pink Donut has looked at the act of playing records through a similar lens and developed RokBlok, a quirky product that reverses the typical equation. Rather than bringing a record to a turntable, they’ve created a player that you bring to the record:

Sure it’s silly, but it’s fun, and I really like the simple user interface of the lever. The device weighs 3.2 ounces and runs on rubber wheels, so as not to scratch your record.

RokBlok is a runaway success on Kickstarter: At press time 1,377 backers pledged $ 121,651 on a $ 50,000 goal, and there’s still 41 days left in the campaign.
