'A new machine offers users the ability to cut their own 10" vinyl records instantly.
The $1,212 Phonocutis expected to arrive in December 2020, though it’s available for pre-order now. Its co-creator, Florian “Doc” Kaps, said that simplicity was at the core of its operation.
“It has to be idiot-proof,” he toldWired. “Even I myself should be in a position to cut the records. ... Digital has a big problem … it’s not real. You can very easily access it, but you only can see it or you can hear it. You can never lick it, you cannot smell it and you can’t touch it. We human beings do have these five senses. And at the end of the day, we need all these five senses to fall in love, to feel happy, to build trust.”' - via UltimateClassicRock
A Kickstarter campaign, which will offer the Phonocut at the discount price of $1,100, launches on Oct. 15.
