An invention virtually no one needs: a Bluetooth cassette player.

There’s a reason we left cassettes behind: They’re a hateful, unreliable, bad-sounding music storage format. The only people nostalgic for cassette culture are those who never knew what it was like to live through the cassette era.

Yet there are retro-nostalgists who insist that the cassette should not die. Witness a new product from NINM Lab: a cassette player with Bluetooth connectivity.

Sorry. Pass.
