Apple iPod Walkman – Future Retro

Did the iPod kill the Walkman? Don’t think so, it was pretty much dead and dying before the iPod came along but in a show of generosity the iPod is helping to revive it’s deceased predecessor.

Well, not really but this cassette player with iPod face is pretty cool anyway. This looks more like a mod than a concept (who would bring back cassette players now?) and is essentially your traditional Walkman-like cassette player with what looks to be a more or less fully functioning iPod face-plate, complete with a rather bright LED.

If cassette players had looked like this back in the day maybe the would still be around. Then again, given what a nightmare it was when your tapes got tangles, maybe not. Rather than getting a mod for your cassette player, you would be better of getting a mod for your iPhone
