If you like somebody, make and give this person a mixtape. If you want to show your rebellion and test your parents, make yourself some mixtapes and manage to have them played in the car. All the time.USB flash drives, today, are as handy as cassettes almost were yesterday.
A few years ago, I saw a cardboard mixtape-shaped USB drive case there, and found the USB idea quite neat. But I wanted something more, well, authentic.
And very recently, I wanted to share music with a person I like.
The above intro picture tells it all, you now have the whole concept. Really want more details? read on...
Step 1: Needed Stuff
- A compact cassette. A model assembled with screw, not heat staking. So that you can open it.
- A cassette box.
- A cheap USB flash drive, with a physical size that can fit into the cassette, as described in the next step. The keyring hole position should be placed so as to ease the placement of the pivot, if possible using one of the cassette's small holes (see step 4).
- You will also need one small (M2) screw, and two nuts.
- Cutter or X-Acto knife
- Drill press (or Dremel) to adjust the USB flash drive
- Flat pliers
