Got Some Mixed Tapes Still Lying Around? The Elbow Player Can Squeeze The Music Out

Many of you reading this have never used a cassette tape. You might’ve heard of them, sure, but likely you’ve never seen on in real life, and the Elbow will just seems a curiosity. But for those of us born in the early 80’s, there’s a chance we still have a little collection covered in dust somewhere, rich in nostalgia. Maybe it’s that mix tape you made in high school. Maybe it’s an Aerosmith album or something. The Elbow Player is a tiny conceptual device meant to play cassette tapes, and give back access to sounds otherwise lost forever. One section of the player grabs the spool and spins it, while the reader picks up the music. The image above is pretty self-explanatory

Sadly, it’s a concept project that doesn’t seem to be turning into a Kickstarter or anything. Which is a shame, because we bet there’d be a market for this.

The cassette tape coffee table was commissioned by Rob Ireland and built by Ross Langley. You can check out more photos here.

I’m sure it took a lot of work and makeup to get their skin to that particular hue. The images might look Photoshopped, but they aren’t, which makes these costumes all the more impressive.
