Contexture recycles old cassettes into iPod nano cases

Cassette_nano

Contexture – the people behind the 45 record iPod cases – are back with another way of recycling vintage audio – the 45 nano.

Despite the name, there’s no vinyl here, this time it’s all about the humble audio cassette. One side of a cassette case is hollowed out to fit first- and second-generation iPod nanos, shielded by a clear plastic window that includes openings for access to the music player’s controls, headphone jack and charging dock. The rear still looks like an old tape.

And if you happen to own one of the brand new nanos, they’re working on a similar case for those too. If you want one of the cases, they’re available online now, priced at $45 (which is around £23).
