Despite the fact that vinyl records have been succeeded by a litany of new digital audio formats, records are anything but dead. In fact, they’ve even seen a resurgence in recent years. Vinyl sales saw a 32 precent increase in 2013, and they’re showing no signs of slowing. We’re not entirely sure what’s fueling this return to vinyl – maybe it legitimately sounds better, maybe it’s just nostalgia – but one thing is certain: a decent record player is something you should definitely have in your house.

Furthermore, having a good way to display your tightly-curated record collection is a must as well. There’s nothing quite like flipping through a healthy stack of old LPs, so it’s important that your collection is visible, accessible, and above all, inviting.

This drool-worthy record bureau from U.K. furniture designer Hugh Miller kills both birds with one stone, acting as both a record player and a storage cabinet. It’s made from a band of solid Iroko – a hardwood which originates from the west coast of tropical Africa, sometimes called African Teak. The wood is folded in clean and is set on top of a 1985 Bang and Olufsen turntable, which is seamlessly integrated and complete with all its original controls. The folded timber intertwines and punches through itself to create an angled shelf for record storage, as well as an upturned end you can fill with books, magazines, and whatever else.

The Folded Record Bureau is being made in a limited edition run of ten pieces, each inscribed with a makers mark and edition number, priced at £4,950 (US $8,098) + shipping costs.

The Blink Mini 2 is a solid security camera that clocks in at a great price, making it the ideal option for shoppers on a budget. It takes everything people loved about the original Blink Mini and makes it even better, offering an affordable way to keep tabs on your home remotely. The Blink Mini eventually received a unique accessory known as the Blink Pan-Tilt Mount, allowing users to freely rotate the camera and see all corners of their home. And since the Blink hasn't yet released a Blink Mini 2 Pan-Tilt Mount, many folks are wondering if the original Pan-Tilt Mount works with the Blink Mini 2.

Unfortunately, the Pan-Tilt Mount does not work with the Blink Mini 2. If you're interested in learning more, here's a closer look at why that's the case, along with info as to whether Blink plans to launch a Pan-Tilt Mount for the Blink 2 in the future.
Why doesn't the Pan-Tilt Mount work with Blink Mini 2?

American Lawn Mower Company 50514 — $139, was $160

The American Lawnmower Company has created a lawn mower that works well and isn't enormously heavy — a mere 20 pounds. With its 14-inch cutting width and absurdly low weight, you can zip through small jobs quickly and get back to whatever else it is that you'd prefer to be doing in a hurry. The only odd point, at least if you're coming from traditional lawn mowers, about the American Lawnmower Company 50514 is how it is a corded mower. This means you'll have to slightly adjust your mowing to be more like vacuuming with a corded vacuum. It also means that, even with an extension cord, you won't be able to stray too far from home with it. As a result of its weight and corded nature, the American Lawnmower Company 50514 is perfect for smaller homes (and people).
