The Zero.1 by Francesco Cugusi and Roberto Strippoli is made to play both cds and vinyl, as well as letting listeners sync the records to MP3 players. Gotta love it when you can keep the vintage but give it a modern touch!

This caused a resurgence of retro technologies that consumers now embrace for their rarity and atypical designs. Companies can appeal to their target markets by incorporating elements of antiquity into their product designs.
