Now this is definitely an interesting amalgamation of items – a bicycle as well as a record player, all crammed into a single device. Known as Feats Per Minute, this “invention” of sorts will see the incorporation of a turntable onto the rear wheel of a bicycle. Basically, you spin the record player whenever you take a ride, where whatever sound that comes out will go through the route of the horn located at the back. Of course, there were some engineering challenges in this setup which had to be overcome before it worked – among them, making sure the record can play vertically, while ensuring the needle experiences as little skip as possible whenever you take it out for a ride. Check out the video of it in action after the jump for more context.
