What the Elbow Cassette Player does is innovative, geeky, kitschy, revivalist, and incredibly cool… all together! This small device opens up, swivels, and snaps onto a cassette tape (almost like it was meant to be how cassettes were to be played!). While it grabs the cassette’s spools in its elbow arms, the hinge sits against the exposed magnetic tape. A knob on the device allows you to control playback. The entire set-up is literally small enough to feel like you’re holding an iPod Classic.
This Micro photograph was taken by Slinkachu, I think this photograph shows that we are making new things everyday and I like this photograph because I think it was very clever how he made it look like they were chipping off the shell of the egg because he made it look like it was builders doing their work.
