vinylOS is an alternative controller game console and media art installation based on a DJ turntable. The turntable is transformed into a screen by projecting onto it from above. Simultaneously it takes on the role of the input-device: by spinning, scratching or rewinding the vinyl you can control games or other audiovisual content.
vinylOS is not just one game on a turntable but is meant to be a turntable console. So far there are two games available for vOS but more (also from third party developers) are planned.
vinylOS was being developed together with Josef Wiesner & Ana Jeličić
The software was improved with the help of the video game studio Parallel Circles
In 2017 the project was awarded the Content Vienna 2017.
In 2017 it won the A Maze Audience Award.
It is part of the permanent exhibition of the Game Science Center, Berlin.
Currently the installation is being rent out by Random Bazar.
