BURO Gadget Guide: 5 Powerful gadgets on our radar this October 2022

In this month’s edition of the BURO Gadget Guide, we round up five innovative and exciting new tech gadgets for work and play. From a powerful new tablet to a turntable that also works as a stunning statement piece, there’s something for every need. Read on for the full list!


Rimowa x Daniel Arsham’s Eroded Turntable

Rimowa’s Pilot Case has long been a cult favourite amongst airline staff and musicians for its compact size and functional design. Most recently, American contemporary artist Daniel Asrham reimagined the classic luggage in their newest collaboration. Arsham, who is known for creating art through the lens of what he calls ‘future history’ and ‘fictional archaelogy’, has taken the famed suitcase and turned it into an archival piece, complete with an eroded plaster material and crushed glass.

Called The Eroded Turntable in Pilot Case, the piece echoes Arsham’s famed Future Relics series which imagine everyday objects as discoveries from a future dystopia; the case and turntable appear to have been found in an archaeological site, decayed by time. To ensure the safety and preservation of the structure, the turntable is cushioned in a removable protection foam and comes with art handling gloves. The turntable is available in two colours: black and silver.

Price: RM17,700

Availability: Archive Editions WeChat MiniProgram (Archive Editions), official Rimowa retail stores
