These days we are used to playing our music with the convenience Apple Music and even YouTube. But if you long for a simpler time when the options to listen to your music was considerably more limited, the MIXXTAPE Kickstarter campaign is for you. So it’s just a retro MP3 player skin? Not quite. Perhaps the most eye-catching feature of this Kickstarter project is its ability to fit in standard cassette players. With the magnetic head, this gives users a full analog music experience, minus the tape. Also, it supports microSD cards up to 64GB, so you can play over 15,000 tracks per card. This is considerably more than a standard tape that typically held about 45 minutes of audio per side. On the technical side, MIXXTAPE boasts a rechargeable battery, as you’ve come to expect from digital music players. This brings around 12 hours of playback! The Kickstarter campaign is running until 21 June, with production set to begin this summer. First deliveries should be completed by November 2017.
