In the days before iPods and iPhones, there was a handy little device known as the cassette. Though a wonder in its day, who would have thought that a device smaller than the tape itself could hold thousands of songs and play them too?

Nevertheless, the cassette does not seem to want to go away entirely and continues to be re-purposed in all kinds of ways, some cool, some less so. Pictured items include four-way USB hub, cassette purse, transformer toy, wallet, single jump drive, necklace, belt buckle, tape dispense and watch.
