Mintpass Goes Oldschool with The Cube

Like many of you, we here at Anything But iPod have spent more late nights than we’d care to admit wondering what would happen if an early ’80s cassette deck and an MP3 player bumped nasties.

Fortunately, it looks like the folks at Mintpass were just as curious as we were.

Meet the Mintpass Cube…

The 2”x2”x2” player features a real analog VU meter, voltmeter, and FM frequency meter to let you know what’s going on in that little cube. There are also 10 buttons on top, some of which behave like buttons on a cassette player with one popping up when another is pressed. It also has Bluetooth support, although we’d imagine pairing it to something would be quite difficult.

So where can you buy the Cube? You can’t. It’s just a concept for now. On the bright side, you can finally stop wondering about the ’80s cassette deck MP3 player thing. You’re welcome, world.
