Arcateliers based in Chicago have created a new take on a classic gramophone providing a modern reimagined holographic Bluetooth turntable called the Kozmophone. Launched via Kickstarter this month the project has already raised over $61,000 thanks to over 200 backers with still 20 days remaining on its campaign. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about what you can expect from the turntable and portable speaker combination.
As demonstrated in the video above the speaker is detachable and can be synced with your smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth technology. For a full list of all available pledges which start from $249 and full specifications jump over to the official Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign page by following the link below. The designers of Kozmophone explain more about the inspiration behind the turntable, manufacturing and Kickstarter campaign.
“We have been working relentlessly for the past year to turn all our ideas into reality. We have significantly reduced risks and challenges by working closely with numerous turntable and speaker manufacturers, who all believe in us and our dream and are ready to go the extra mile to ensure every Kozmophone product is perfect and ready on time. Kozmophone may seem like a complicated product to make, and it is in a way. But it is made with existing mechanisms and we have already sourced the required components. None of the technology in our product was invented from scratch. Kozmophone simply combines existing technologies into an innovative product. As a result, we are completely confident about completion and delivery.”
