Elbow Portable Cassette Player

Break out those mix tapes! Elbow is the portable cassette player simplified. This sleek music machine brings renewed life to this iconic music format.


Elbow is the portable cassette player simplified. Tapes have had it pretty rough since the dawn of CDs and digital formats but this sleek concept might just bring some life back to them.
Grab this cassette player and break out that box of old tapes (don’t forget those mix tapes from your high school crush). Elbow will give you a fresh new experience with those iconic gems. The playback features are managed with an intuitive control dial which allows you to stop, control the volume, speed, and directional play.

The usual length of the tapes inside a cassette tape: 281 ft 3 inches. That’s just a few hotdogs short of the entire length of a football field. [via]
