VOID Player Spins Your Vinyl In A New Way

Can't Touch This...

Can’t Touch This…

Korean designer Rhea Jeong says she’s been astounded by the amount of interest in her conceptual Void LP record player. One look at the design and you can see why it’s made so much noise without even uttering a sound. Close your eyes and imagine a little red globe spinning around on top of a vinyl record emitting sound from speakers inside it. The record itself is suspended in mid-air above a simple black base unit – no strings attached, no wires holding it up and definitely no safety net. The imagery is quite simply jaw-dropping. But can such a thing really work?

Diving to New Depths

A woman from London has set a new freediving world record after swimming 96m (318ft) below the surface of the ocean and back in a single breath. Sara Campbell, 37, from Wandsworth, spent 3min 36sec submerged off an island in the Bahamas.

The dive in the Vertical Blue contest took her down the equivalent of the height of Big Ben’s clock tower.

In October 2007 she smashed all world depth records within 48 hours, after only nine months in the extreme sport. Her latest feat, is known as the constant weight world record, in which the diver must use just a monofin – a mermaid like tail – and their own power.
