Cassette Tape USB Hub Won’T Play, Pause or Rewind


I can’t think of any better way to connect my mix tape USB flash drive to my computer than to plug it into this retro cassette tape USB hub.

The 4-port USB 2.0 hub may look exactly like an old school cassette tape, but I can pretty much assure you that you’ll wreck your tape player if you attempt to pop this thing in and listen to it. I can only imagine the horrific screeching sound that would come out of my speakers when I press play. Of course, assuming that you actually follow the instructions and use it as a proper USB hub, it should be much more benign.

It’ll look really great sandwiched between your old Steve Miller Band, Boston and Foreigner tapes that I’m sure you still have lying next to your Walkman. You can get your hands on the USB cassette tape USB hub at UK gadget shop I Want One of Those for £12.99 (appx. $24 USD).

    LOL. This USB hub masked well with the cassette case. Cool stuff to fool people.

    Neat, fun gadget… I like it, but It shows your age when your young nephew asks what a tape cassette is :)

    I’m indifferent to the design, you can pretty much find a USB drive or a USB hub that looks like just about anything (I do remember a 4-USB 2-1934 Godzilla hub I saw years ago) but my only complaint for this one is that it doesn’t have a USB-B port on the back so you immediately have to use 1 of them to connect back to your cpu/other hub.

    So in essence it’s not even a 4-USB port hub, it’s 3.
