After the vinyl resurrection, will cassettes make another comeback?

If you're an 80s or early 90s kid who doesn't know what to do with your pile of old school cassette collection besides playing them on your old-fashioned tape deck, we have something for you.

Meet the Elbow: a no-frills cassette player and sequel to the Walkman.

Introduced by a lithuanian-based audiovisual art organization BrainMonk, Elbow's design is rather more straighforward than a traditional cassette player. The device relies only a single pulley to run the tape, with the playback speed tracked by an optical sensor.

Then there's the biaxial arm that enablse you to switch sides to change playback without flipping the tape. The Elbow's battery is charged through a mini USB port, and a charge may not take much time considering it's simple mechanism.

Elbow is just prototype for now, but it could be in production soon.
