  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

Nicely engineered and completely redundant - this is how I like my hacks! Amazing!  8)
I guess a Bluetooth-based cassette adapter with your cellphone will be a bit more practical and much cheaper though  8)

The creator has just tied together the individual PCBs, it would be much nicer if he had created a single PCB device with a custom tape-shaped PCB. It would also be possible to detect the start/stop of the tape drive then for multiload games.

Apparently he's considering a Kickstarter with a proper PCB which would also lower the cost...

Oh like those AA tapes that had a program to copy themselves to disk then?

The quality of your Photoshopping makes it so much funnier. Get that on Kickstart or Indinogo and you'll make a fortune.
