Dust off that sweet tape collection you’ve been keeping in the back of your closet, a cool new gadget could soon have you rocking out to your favorite mixtapes again.

While vinyl has been making a comeback of its own, cassette tapes have been quietly readying for their close-up. Now, a company called ELBOW is poised to change the way we listen to tapes.

ELBOW is a device created by an art duo called BrainMonk who have engineered a cassette player down to its basic mechanics. While the gadget is pretty minimalist, it makes up for it in cool factor. The player is actually mounted onto the cassette tape, you plug in your earbuds and rock on. While it isn’t yet available for sale, the buzz is out there and we could get them one day in the future.

Take a look at the device below and let us know if you’d add this to your music room!
