The recent uptick in vinyl popularity has resulted in quite a bit of innovation in the field. From heavy-duty 180 gram records to nuanced takes on record players themselves. This lasted stint in the world of records concerns the latter, it’s a levitating turntable, and yes it actually works.

Built-out by MAG-LEV Audio, this is the first levitating turntable of its kind. Ever. Which is saying a lot considering all of the other levitating devices out there making their rounds these days. It uses a magnetic system to stay levitated and patented technology to control the rotation of the platter with their sensor regulating software. It has the capability of both 33 1/3 and 45 rpm speeds and hosts a sleek design that feels right at home in any contemporary living space. The turntable also comes stock with a Pro-Ject 8.6 tonearm, an Ortofon OM 5E cartridge, and boasts semi-automatic capabilities and a cueing mechanism to remove the element of human error from the equation. The turntable is currently available for reservation on Kickstarter and is slated to retail $1,390. [Purchase]
