Some Geniuses Have Turned Oreo Cookies into Playable Records
Published Sep 27, 2017It looks like Discogs might have to update their policies to incorporate food-handling, because someone has figured out how to press music onto a playable Oreo cookie.
Hong Kong ad agency Dimension Plus has created playable cookies that feature the Oreo theme song performed in different styles.
Here's what they had to say about the project [via Digital Music News]:
We created an Oreo that plays music by replacing the classic embossing with grooves on the cookies surface that work as a vinyl record. We placed these music embossed Oreos in special Oreo Music Packs. Each cookie in the pack plays the Oreo anthem in a different musical style bringing wonder to their ears... Borrowing the concept and mechanics of vinyl record, the data on the cookie is embossed with a mod which is made with laser cutting and engraving technique. And we wrote a program to transform the music into a pattern. After that, we make it into a laser-engraving friendly format and produce the mod for the Oreo Vinyl production.
