A friend of mine christened one fitting specimen with a most fitting name : ISellYouMyMother - in our language, but I kid you not!
OMG - LMAO !!!  Since I am recording mainly choirs, I immediately forwarded this to some of the "most guilty parties" ( goes as far as close friend of Mr. Whitacre , himself a singer, conductor and composer ) - now I am awaiting what their response would be ...
One could add a water tank and control the level with valve(s) - VTA on the fly .  Yes, any liquid will evaporate - sooner or after. What I like about this arm is the fact that that it does not rely on lateral contact with the groove to propel itself across the playing surface and that it has a really LARGE surface across the energy can be drained into support - the whole surface of the semi-ball, infinitely larger than anything more conventional. About a decade ago, there...
Hehe, completely forgot this one - but shall we stay with turntables, even if they play

It is as old as the hills - it has been done many times before. But it is the only example with photos I could find online. I am planning something similar, but with a twist - if going to these lengths ( and double TT footprint ... ), then I want even better speed stability.
One way or another, fact remains that direct drive, if well implemented, does give better speed characteristics. A version of SL1200, the SL-10, STILL holds the record for lowest wow & flutter ever measured using real test record. Rubber belt with perfectly "round, flat, equally thick" characteristics simply does not exist. To this end, better>best "belt drives" no longer use rubber belts - silicone belt(s) - yes, multiple, I have seen up to 3 belts, threads similar to...
Glad I could help.
