This unique Cassette MP3 Player is modern fun with an old concept. This retro-inspired music player was comprised by designers Stefano Pertegato, Massimiliano Rampoldi, Eloisa Tolu, Francesco Schiraldi and Giovanni Mendini.

The Italian team wanted this awesome device to be more than just an MP3 player housed in a cassette body, they also wanted it to have similar functions to a cassette. Incorporating both modern and traditional elements, the designers of the Cassette MP3 Player were able to give users a device that holds up to 45 songs and is the size of a real cassette. What makes it original is the fact that you can fast-forward and rewind by turning the cassette wheel tracks, just like you would back in the day.
