There’s a lot of chatter lately about lazer cutters and 3D printers—heck, you can make a gun with them, for god’s sake! But there’s of course much safer fun to be had with new technology, and one such example is the awesome experiments being done by Amanda Ghassaei, who 3D-printed a record last year and who has now lazer-cut one of our wood.

So, how does it sound? Well, naturally, pretty crappy—but remember what MP3s sounded like three or four years ago? Check it out below and decide for yourself.

“For me, the most interesting part of publishing these projects is to see where other people take them, and the 3-D printed records were just a little too difficult for an average person to experiment with. I’m hoping that people will download my code and make their own records, or make something I haven’t even thought of yet,” she told Wired. Read the whole story here.
