Plynth: A Magic Record Stand That Can Play Your Records For You

We recently discovered Plynth in an interesting thread on Reddit. Fundamentally, Plynth is small record stand with an excellent modern technology. The prototype consists of a 3D-printed body, which holds a record sleeve at an attractive angle for display. A camera built into the base then images the artwork. The first image taken is run through the Google Vision API, and further images are then run through OpenCV to identify the record. This data is then passed to the Spotify API to play the track. The whole process takes a couple of seconds, and the music is then pumped out of whatever streaming device is connected to the rig.

It’s a fun way to play your old records, and would be a welcome change to those tired of screaming at Siri to play music. For those interested in this project, check out Plynth website for further updates
