3D printed record. Amanda Ghassaei has created a program for converting digital audio into a 3D model of a 33rpm record. The video below demonstrates one of her 3D printed records being played on a standard turntable with a regular needle, just as as if it were a typical vinyl record.
3D Printed Record. Created using Processing, ModelBuilder Library by Marius Watz and a 3D printer, Amanda Ghassaei at instructables managed to print a 33rpm music record that actually doesn’t sound too bad considering the limitations of currently available 3d printing technologies.
Amanda Ghassaei succeeded to create a vinyl with a 3D printer that can be played on a regular record player and can as well print converted mp3s to the printed object. A new step in the 3D printing technique to discover in video below.
On the DIY website Instructables, developer and audiophile Amanda Ghassaei has posted experiments in using 3D printing and laser cutting to create custom records. Her instructable teaches other audiophiles to transform audio files into 33 RPM resin records using a very high resolution 3D printer that creates objects layer by very thin layer.

3D printed record puts a new spin on digital music- Ghassaei developed a technique that converts digital audio files into 3D printable (33 rpm) grooved plastic discs, that actually play on regular turntables. The printer used was high-resolution, with 600 dpi on the x/y axes, and layers just 16 microns thick, but the audio quality is still somewhat low - 11KHz, with a 5 - 6bit resolution. The important thing, however, is that it worked
Amanda Ghassaei set out to push 3D printing to its current limits by creating her own long-playing records. After converting digital audio into a 3D model, she was able to 'press' her own 'vinyl' using an Objet printer, one of the best models on the market. But it leaves the Objet at least an order of magnitude or two away from the resolution of a real vinyl record. That means the audio on the records she created is very low resolution.

An app offering real-time translations is to allow people in Japan to speak to foreigners over the phone with both parties using their native tongue. NTT Docomo - the country's biggest mobile network - will initially convert Japanese to English, Mandarin and Korean, with other languages to follow. It is the latest in a series of telephone conversation translators to launch in recent months.
