Digital Mixtape plays mp3s old school style


MAKE subscriber Justin fused the convenience of digital music with the feel and playback functionality of a cassette –

It is a cassette tape adapter and a micro usb port hooked up to a tiny mp3 player that I picked up at target. Its a simple build and only took an evening. Its an on going project I started a while back.

Neat idea! More pics plus earlier versions of the project can be found on Justin’s blog. Hmmm … maybe the next incarnation could have FF/REW capabilities triggered by turning the spools?
