A sideways take on a classic.
The Floating Record, a vertical turntable developed by Chicago startup Gramovox, reached its $50,000 funding goal in less than three hours when it launched on Kickstarter earlier this year.

It’s unusual, sure – but not quite a contender for the eight most eccentric turntables ever made. For something a little more realistic, check our guide to the best budget turntables.
