Kloomba turned a cassette mechanism into a magnetic tape reading robot –

Made almost entirely out of a boombox, this little bugger can go forward, backward, and turn, all while dragging its tape head around and broadcasting whatever it finds (A scape made of tape) to a radio for your glitchy listening pleasure.

Not to be confused with other boombox bots Witnessing this little guy ride atop a shiny “Tapescape” is likely an interesting site as well as sound.
