3D Printing Plastic Records 10 Sep 2012
Many kids born in the '70s grew up with these Fisher-Price Record Players, which used plastic discs to play music-box-sounding analog music. With a quick wind-up, you could choose from your array of plastic discs to belt out classics such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Frere Jacques. Earlier this year, innovator Fred Murphy took on a personal project to produce the old plastic children's turntable vinyls without the 1970s molds. Instead, he opted to make use of 3D printing to prototype records of both the Star Wars theme and Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven".
