    The Sony Walkman, best known for playing some of the sweetest mix-tapes ever recorded entirely off the radio, will no longer be manufactured as of this year. Weird, I could have sworn this happened before Y2K. The final batch was shipped to Japanese retailers in April, accor... / Continue →

    Note: Video of the trickery after the jump. This is an image of a boombox created out of cassette tape that only looks like a boombox when viewed from the proper angle. Otherwise it just looks like a bunch of metallic rat turds strewn across a kitchen floor. That said, I wat... / Continue →

    This is a $135 EOS Mixtape Watch (that looks fairly similar to THIS tape watch). For those of you born yesterday, it looks like a cassette tape, which was a popular audio format from yesteryear before the advent of holographic music discs and iProds. OMG I USED TO MAKE THE BE... / Continue →

    These cassette tape wallets from designbloom are wallets made out of old cassette tapes. Pretty clever, but they cost $43. So if you've ever wanted to try making something yourself, now's your chance. Just make me one. With a Def Leppard tape. Bitchin'? BITCHIN'! cassett... / Continue →

    Some designers over at Transparent House have come up with a pretty clever way of recycling old cassette tapes. Not as clever as shooting them off your fence from the back porch, but still pretty clever. They're making lamps. That's right, lamps. You know, illumination devi... / Continue →

    The AOS Cassette Face Watch costs about $70 and looks like a cassette. It also tells time. No way. Yes way. No way! Yes way! But who needs to tell time anyways? Time is old fashioned and not the sun. I suggest we get rid of time altogether and any hot and spicy female r... / Continue →

    This $25 tape dispenser looks like a cassette. A cassette tape! How very clever of someone. You can choose a red or green label, and both models dispense a long, thin, sticky plastic film (aka tape). I like it, it's got old school flair. If I didn't already steal six tape ... / Continue →
