Cassette MP3 Player

Think Geek reports: [edited]

In between the vinyl record and the CD, there was another music media format - the cassette tape. It was very popular during the 80s and one thing that made it stand out was that you could record onto it.

This led to the 'mix tape' - a collection of kick ass songs you'd give to someone you were trying to impress.

This MP3 player is built into a standard cassette shell, letting you use it as either a MP3 player, or with any car cassette or cassette player via the built-in SD card slot.

Brett's 2p'orth: I have no idea how this works in a cassette player, but if it involves little men, I won't be in the least bit surprised.

A while ago I was watching a TV programme called "Pimp my Ride " where the subject car was a 60's classic. To get an up to date sounds system the tech guy got hold of a cartridge player - if you can remember them you really are showing your age- and installed an i-pod into a cartridge so it played though the system.

From what I remember of 8 track cartridges, you could probably fit an entire hi-fi mini system into one, and have room for batteries and a CD collection!
