    Is what it is... matey used some clever algorythm to convert mp3 data into CAD design, early days (read, sounds like shit) yet but intetesting none-the-less

    Fair play for adding "Window Licker" in there. It does sound terrible though, but still early days eh?

    inb4 vinyls dead.

    Thats nuts, this 3D printing stuff is taking off in a big way, i think i read somewhere that the US military use them out in afghan for on the spot spare parts for guns etc.

    couldn't they do a spot of reverse engineering and laser scan a record into the computer, then just recreate the records from the scanned data. I've seen it done with CNC machines where 2/3 lasers scan a statue and then the cnc will reproduce it from another material like foam board. i recon as the 3D process is much more accurate than CNC and probably the actual cutting of a dubplate then it would be miles easier!!!
