Those old cassette tapes are still good for something
Nostalgic for cassette tapes but love the convenience of iPods?
Now you can have them both in one product.
They've also put in some cushioning foam and a plastic sleeve to protect the player, while still making it possible to work the touch-wheel.
A release from the designers' company, Contexture Design, says the product, called the 45nano, was made "according to Contexture's philosophy of using recycled and re-purposed materials."
It does not, however, say why anyone would want to spend $45 Canadian on the device.
Maybe it's just the thing for listening to old Journey albums. You just have to supply your own hiss.
