Cardboard Box Turntables Are Now A Thing


Last year fast-food giant Pizza Hut made international headlines when it unveiled the world’s first playable DJ pizza box that when folded turned into a complete turntable setup, including two decks, volume sliders, pitch controls and a crossfader.

Chinese startup Spinbox is taking the concept to the next level with their own line of DIY turntables made out of cardboard.

Billed as a simple, affordable way to experience vinyl, the decks are easy to assemble and come with a built-in amplifier and a pair of speakers. Spinbox’s exterior is made from recycled paper pulp — a water-resistant, and versatile material that is also used in packaging for Apple products.

Additionally, Spinbox can easily switch from 33 to 45 to 78 RPM and plays 7-inch, 10-inch, and 12-inch singles. It can be driven via micro USB and fits most phone charger adapters and portable chargers.

The lightweight, easy-to-carry decks are easily assembled in five easy steps that the brand say takes 18 minutes to put together.

If you’re eager to get your hands on one of these decks, well, you’re going to have to wait a while. Spinbox is about to launch a crowdfunding campaign. Find out more here.
