Laser Etching onto a Tortilla Actually Plays Music

Trevor English

Tortillas. A delicious treat and now, the perfect way to play music. Using a laser engraver, one engineer posed the question of whether you could turn a round tortilla into a record. It sounds like an absurd proposition, but in theory, it could work. All that is needed to make this work is a laser engraver path and a program set to create a "tortillecord" (tortilla record). One of the reasons this video is so amazing is because the result is just so shocking, actual music comes from the engraved record.
