Based on the Short Stories of Etgar Keret, $9.99 is a stop motion animated feature directed by Tatia Rosenthal. It tells the story of unemployed 28 year old Dave Peck who buys a book on the meaning of life. In his struggle to share his find with the world, Dave's surreal path crosses with those of his unusual neighbors.

It looks great, I just hope it gets released here in the UK. link

Paper Record Player by Simon Elvins

This turntable is made entirely of paper. To play the record the handle needs to be turned in a clockwise direction at a steady 331/3rpm. The paper cone then acts as a pickup, amplifying the sound enough to make it audible. link
