Oana Jones’ 3D Printed Record Player Worldwide Hit

A working vinyl record player made with a 3D printer has gained Auckland animation tutor Oana Jones worldwide attention.

Jones created the player for a competition run by American independent record label Ghostly International and New York-based 3D printer company, MakerBot.

The head of the US Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai, saw Jones’ entry and tweeted about it.

“It’s gone crazy on the net. There’s about 40 different articles in four different languages,” Jones said.

Jones’ player consists of a plastic turntable operated by a crank, a speaker made of a piece of paper and a needle from a sewing kit.
