The novelty of making someone a mix tape hasn’t worn off, and the MakerBot Mixtape is reviving that nostalgic feeling. iPods and Smartphones just don’t have that same vintage aesthetic, but this awesome device combines all the great qualities about those items with the mix-tape look.

It has tons of great features including 2GB memory, playback MP3 files, a battery life of four hours along with the same great play and pause functions. USB cable hook-up is also available plus any normal headphones can be attached.

On the MakerBot website it states, "The MakerBot Applications team, our division of makers and designers, have figured out a way to bring this magic back to life with a modern twist."

This throw-back device is ideal for playing 90s tunes. Stats for Cassette Music Players Trending: Older & Mild
