Gramovox is a Bluetooth gramophone that takes retro to absurd auditory heights


When in search of retro cool, there's little out there that can compete with iconic gramophone. The Gramovox keeps the 19th century design with a large horn to amplify your tunes. But under the hood, audiophiles Pavan Bapu and Jeff Parrish have replaced the need for physical media with a Bluetooth radio. Inspired by similar docks that funneled audio from a phone's speaker though phonograph-style horn, they've set about creating a version that doesn't require you to tether your smartphone to a large, non-portable object. Unfortunately, we don't know much else about the device. It's still in development and the creators are currently aiming for a Q3 release. If you're interested you can sign up for updates at the source link. And you'll find a quick teaser video after the break.
