Innovative Sweden: Playable frozen record

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Add water, freeze and spin. Sit back and listen to your turntable spin Blue Ice, a new release by Shout Out Louds, a Stockholm based indie rock band. And when it melts, just add more water, refreeze and spin again. Bet you are glad you kept your old turntable.

The theme was fittingly to help children in impoverished nations have better access to clean water. It sold for SEK 4758 (or $730). Here is the link to the now closed auction.
