I first learned about this perfect mix of future and retro thanks to SXSWi.
A 3D printed record. It's future technology to create retro media, and I love it.
I keep a record player in the house to keep the mid-century vibe going, and because I own plenty of records to play on it. And because in the back of my head I'm still planning on hosting an uber-swank retro-inspired cocktail party where I play all said records as background music. Maybe someday I'll be printing my own records in the study and playing them in the living room for guests.
