What the Elbow Cassette Player does is innovative, geeky, kitschy, revivalist, and incredibly cool… all together! This small device opens up, swivels, and snaps onto a cassette tape (almost like it was meant to be how cassettes were to be played!). While it grabs the cassette’s spools in its elbow arms, the hinge sits against the exposed magnetic tape. A knob on the device allows you to control playback. The entire set-up is literally small enough to feel like you’re holding an iPod Classic.
The Mu Tags are tiny “loss prevention” smart-tags that track the location of the items they are placed on. Mu Tags even allow you to create safe-zones, so when a certain tag leaves the zone, you’re alerted immediately. Each tag is ridiculously small (the size of your thumbnail), making it ideal to snap onto everyday items, and comes with a battery that can run for 3 months on a full charge.
