Oreo Records: Have Your Cookie and Play It.

“Oreo vinyl?” Yep.

These are actual cookies that can be played on a special turntable. Produced for the Chinese market by a company called Dimensions, they say

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.

The whole point is to make Oreos more attractive to the Chinese who, for some inexplicable reason, haven’t fallen to the charms of Oreos.

There are four cookie records in the package, one each for jazz, classical, Chinese and electronic.When they wear out, you eat them.

Thanks to Ronald for the link.
