A Record Cleaning Robot? Well, I like records. You know, LPs? Discs of vinyl? With grooves? For those that don't know, records can sound good when they are spotlessly clean, but cleaning them really well is hard and tedious and I am very lazy.

So instead of going through the work of manually cleaning hundreds recently acquired records, it makes way more sense to spend countless hours working at building a robot to scrub and vacuum that vinyl for me!

Ok, sure, maybe this sounds like an automatic record cleaning machine to you... but to me it is a Record Cleaning Robot. A mechanical minion. Silicon slave. Sort of a vinyl cleaning kobold, like the mythical Biersal, only for records!

Admittedly, it won't be able to pick the record out of my hand with a clenching plastic fist and pull it out of the cover and sleeve and scrub away with the charming personality of Rosie the Maid... but by gum, I'll get some sparkly clean records out of it!
