3D printed record puts a whole new spin on file sharing

Recently there has been a lot of buzz around the subject of 3D printers, but who knew that their output was detailed enough to let you spit out a record that you can play on a record player?

This isn't a regular record that you can play on any turntable, but one using a long forgotten Fisher-Price format with really big grooves turning at what looks to be about 2 rpm.

Naturally if you're going to go to all this trouble to do this type of analog file sharing, you'll need some suitable music, so they used anti-copyright crusader Jonathan Coulton's song Still Alive from the video game Portal. For me the lo-fi quality from the Fisher -Price gives the song an added sense of creepiness.
