With less than 24 hours until its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter comes to an end, Gramovox’s vertical turnable Floating Record has successfully secured over $1.5 million thanks to 4,000 backers.
The Floating Record is described as a high-performance turntable that plays records vertically through built-in, dynamic, full-range stereo speakers (or through an RCA line out). Each Floating Record sits on a wood base and a belt connects from a small wheel to a platter, causing it to spin and create a great sound without any issues.
Gramovox created the Floating Record after the launch of its other Kickstarter project, Bluetooth Gramophone. The other device secured $241,00 on the platform in later 2013 but has been struggling with late delivering to backers. CEO Pavan Bapu stated that he hopes to avoid any of those type of problems with the Floating Record.
Sharing their appreciation for the backers, the Gramovox team wrote:
“As our campaign draws to a close, we’d like to take this moment to say thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your tremendous support over the past 35 days. Thanks to the immeasurable passion of this incredible Kickstarter community, we’ve raised over $1.5 million, a feat we never imagined when we first launched this campaign. Thank you all so much for helping to bring this project to life and for the overwhelming reception you’ve given the Floating Record. We would not have been able to do any of this without you.
“Another thank you is in order to all of you who came to our launch party at Revolution Brewery! We were so excited to show off the Floating Record to everyone, and the party was a blast. Once again, thank you all for putting your faith in us and our vision. We can’t wait for you to experience the Floating Record!”
The company also shared pictures of the party (see below). Those looking to back the project have until tomorrow morning!
