Cassettes may not be the best format for listening to music right now, but its design has turned it into an actual retro icon. Mixxtape has created a portable music player that has a cassette shape; it includes a display, Bluetooth, headphone jack, memory card slot & more.
How does it work?
The Mixxtape works just like any other digital music player. You can transfer songs, podcasts, and audiobooks to a PC or Mac via USB, and it will be controlled via a small LCD touch screen in the front. Mixxtape supports formats like FLAC, MP3, WMA, OOG and WAV, and stores them all in an 8GB MicroSD card that comes with it (can be expanded.) The inventors of the device say that the battery lasts about 12 hours and it will get recharged within an hour.
On the other hand, Mixxtape offers three playback options. There is a standard 3.5mm headphone port that allows you to connect it to a headset or you can also connect via Bluetooth to wireless speakers. The feature that will appeal to the hipster audience is the fact that it can be played on an old cassette player, be it a Walkman, a cassette radio.
How to get a Mixxtape Player?
The player has a Kickstarter campaign and has already accumulated a bit more $ 85,000, about eight and a half times its original target, with 12 days remaining. If you want yours, visit the campaign and spend $ 50 from your wallet. It should arrive in November.
