Cool MP3 Toy

from the neat-ideas dept

mhh5 writes "Check out this faux cassette..." And, to add some info to that, the link is for an MP3 player that's in the shape of a cassette and can be used in cassette players as well. A very creative idea. Though, I think the price needs to come down.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    things that make you go hmmmmmm....

    I have to wonder how real this product is. The web site is only a single page with absolutely no contact information and the only link present takes you to some shaddy looking online ordering site. The pictures depict a very well designed and polished product and I can only imagine the R&D costs it would take to manufacturer something like that.

    Me thinks it is simply a portable cd player to tape converter with a fancy new skin ( a la Photoshop ) and a set of ear phones plugged into the line-in jack. All for the bargain price of $250.

      Hmmmm. You're probably right. But it's a totally feasible product even if it's vaporware, isn't it? It should be anyway...
