LEGO record player

Fun & Games

Jason writes

A paper cup, a sewing needle, and a simple LEGO Mindstorms robot make for a nice little record player. This might be a fun project to work on with the kids this 4th of July weekend. You know they’ve been wondering about the boxes of vinyl frisbees in the basement. Aside from anything else they might be learning, it’s a good opportunity to slip in some information about how music used to be groovy.

    I remember doing this (well a hand cranked version) with my LEGO Technic way back when (set 8860 which I still have). One thing to note is using a simple needle like this will probably ruin the record eventually so best to use an old one!
