New project!

Repurposing unplayable 45s with a RFID player.  You always see a lot of scratched up, neglected 45s at flea markets and garage sales.  Records that won't play anymore. This system uses a sticker wih an RFID antenna inside, and a reader in the form of a "record player". You can program the stickers to cue up any playlist you want.  This is something that I've been working on for the last couple of days.  They're still mp3 files, and the records still take up space, this is just a new, cheap way of listening to music at parties without people all huddled around a computer.

  4. They'll be cheaper someday- this is only a concept. The reader we used to test this system was at the school I used to go to.

  5. I like the single switch operation and that the surface of the system is of the colour blue. Also, I can't tell from the pictures if there is a rotation mechanism for the records to spin. It would add a certain nostalgia, but at the expense of power consumption. From the looks of it, that switch would make a nice and loud snap when turned on, which demands attention and commitment. You couldn't just listen to one record after hearing that snap against the colour blue.
