This is easily the best remake I’ve ever seen, and I promise it won’t bastardize your childhood. Kontor Record’s brilliant redesign of the turntable allowed them to ship vinyl records out to advertising firms, as opposed to CDs which ad agencies are currently flooded with. Knowing that the average desk jockey doesn’t actually have a way to play a record, Kontor created The Office Turntable.
Further proving vinyl will never die, The Office Turntable provides a way to play records with your smartphone. Yep, that’s right, open the sleeve, pull out the record and follow the simple instructions to turn the sleeve into a turntable. Scan the QR code on the record with your phone, place it on the newly constructed turntable, and your phone is now reading that sweet analog album and pumping it through your office speakers. iTunes is suddenly looking a bit drab, isn’t it?
Kontor Records is the world’s biggest dance music label, so it’s no mystery why they went the vinyl route, and as I’m sure you guessed, The Office Turntable provided them with phenomenal results. Musicians and record labels have been spamming companies with CDs for decades now, and it might seem like a trivial step in the process but there was a significant opportunity presenting itself. It’s nice to see someone take advantage of the situation and break up the monotony with such exceptional badassery.
Hey, by the way, now is when you go about the rest of your day and think about what your “Office Turntable” opportunity will be.
