I’ve got an old VCR that I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with for some time. I purged my movie collection of all VHS tapes a couple of years ago, but never got rid of the player itself. I’m really not sure if I was expecting the format to make a comeback or what, but it’s still taking up valuable space in my closet. Well now it seems that my inability to part with old technology will finally pay off. No, tapes aren’t making a comeback. Rather, I might just take a cue from this awesome toaster mod.
If you think about it, the slot for your tape does sort of look like a giant toaster slot. I’m actually a bit surprised that this is the first time I’ve seen a mod like this. It makes perfect sense. This guy even went so far as to have it burn in the letters ‘VHS’ on toast. Brilliant. The guy was nice enough to provide a tutorial on how to make your own, though he warns against doing so for safety reasons.
