Vinyl Workout - Fun Digital Record Player Projected on Your Floor


The author of this invention is Theo Watson. He decided to create this giant recorder for the inaugural Rotterdam Electronic Music Festival.

Dubbed the "Vinyl Workout," the device is able to turn a floor into a digital record player. It projects a huge record player onto the floor. The user has the possibility to control the player by running around on top of the projection.

The interactive system detects the movements of a person on the projection and acts accordingly - when the user walks slowly, the player slows the music down and when the user moves in the opposite direction, the player begins playing the song backwards.

Besides, the Vinyl Workout can serve as a fitness device - the it plays music as long as you walk. More images are available here.
