No it’s actually isn’t some Victorian wheels of steel for laying down some crinoline skills on the (bees) wax, but the Gaumont Chronophone System of 1910 for continuous playback for films.

Still, nice idea thinking of b-boys with bowlers and turntablists with top hats, isn’t it? Or is that just in my head? 😉

      Someone did build one of those, I saw it at one of the Caledon inventor’s fairs 🙂 I didn’t know they existed in RL though!
