From Retro Rhythm Pumpers to Retro Media Players

The cassette tape may be gone, but it is certainly not forgotten as proved by all of these creative cassette creations. Today's culture has created a perfect storm of sorts that makes a cassette tape comeback, or at least a short revival. Hipsters are growing in numbers and love everything that is old -- cassettes included -- and people are becoming more environmentally conscious and are thinking twice before trashing their old electronics.

All of this equals a glut of new art and tech directly created with or inspired by the cassette tape. Everything from paintings of Jimi Hendrix to iPod cases has been created using a cassette and its tape as inspiration. If you really, really miss making mixed tapes, then I highly recommend clicking through all of these creative cassette creations.
