You can play this beer bottle like a record

The future is here, via the past. Thanks to a bunch of technical wizards in New Zealand, you can finally yell “Free Bird!” at your empty beer bottle without drawing too many as many all the stares. As part of Beck’s Record Label Project, the Kiwi firm Gyro Constructivists set out to create the first “playable” beer bottle, and they basically killed it.

The Beck’s bottle plays a single from the local band Ghost Wave on a custom-built machine that’s based off Thomas Edison’s original phonograph — hence why it’s been dubbed the “Edison bottle”. Right now, only two of these bottles (and one player) exist, so unless you’re planning a Lord of the Rings walk sometime in the near future, you’ll have to get your glimpse through the impressive vid below. Hopefully, the next Edison can feature music from these New Zealand heroes.

Take a look at the video here.
