You can now play vinyl with your teeth!

Yes, you read that correctly. Science educator Sam Haynor has come up with an ingenious way to listen to your vinyl records.

You can now play vinyl with your teeth!

Here’s something we never thought we would ever find ourselves saying – someone has invented a way to play vinyl records with your teeth. YES, YOUR TEETH!

Sam Haynor’s ‘tooth phonograph’ uses a record needle along with a wooden skewer and pressure created by biting; essentially, the vibrations will travel up into your skull and resonate inside your head. 

The phonograph mimics technology used in bone conduction headphones where the eardrum doesn’t vibrate to pass the information along to the cochlea; instead, the vibrations from the bone conduction bee-lines for the cochlea.

Haynor is a bit of a whizz when it comes to vinyl playback, as he also shared instructions for creating a makeshift turntable using a pencil and some cardboard. 

One for a witty pun here and there, Haynor writes: “Now you can hear Miles Davis with your molars and The Cure with your canines. With only a few basic supplies, you can tap into the physical grooves of records as they vibrate your jaw, playing music and resonating inside your head. Never before have record stores and dentistry been so tightly linked. Toothfully, you just have to try it.”

You can find the instructions and list of materials required here.
