Logan Riley and his team that have been working together for a while now believe in beauty and potential of Vinyl records. They wish to give the world better options to listen to these amazing records and in order to accomplish this they developed a new product called RokBlok. It is a cordless portable record player that has been designed to help people listen records anywhere anytime they want. The team has accomplished this task while working at Pink Donut and currently they are running a kickstarter campaign for funding the first round of production of this device.
RokBlok is actually placed at the top of records that makes use of rubber wheels to glide along the moving surface in coordination with speakers and needles. A small level placed on the side is flipped up to start the music and place your hands over the unit that leads to downwards movement of lever and directs the unit to stop. It has a bamboo and MDF frame whose dimensions go as 2 x 2 x 4 1/1 inches and weighs approx. 3.2 ounces. The internal speaker of this device works at a frequency of 20-20, 000 Hertz and it works over a rechargeable battery that allows it to play music independently for 120 minutes. The instrument also has Bluetooth capability which means you can easily add Bluetooth speakers under a distance of 30 feet.
This product is a perfect example of product redemption that takes care of all product needs and requirements and reimagines the end results in a perfect manner. The team had to do variety of simulation and analysis to find out the right kind of material over rubber wheels and ensure the most correct center of gravity. This ensured that when device moved over the record, no damage was done to the underlying object. It is a completely new face of an age old idea. The first attempt in this direction was made by Tamco Soundwagon, who played a record by riding over a vinyl surface.
