The heyday of the cassette, along with dozens of other slowly-forgotten means of music transference, may be long passed (Guardians Of The Galaxy aside), but that doesn't mean the technology is ultimately useless. Or at least that's what UK resident Matt Brailsford discovered.

Using his old Ferguson Cassette Recorder, Brailsford used to much more modern technologies to make the connection possible. First, using the incredibly handy Raspberry Pi; a transferable computer chip that can be used by even the least tech savvy novice to expand any tech's abilities (i.e., a cassette recorder). The second is the specially annotated NFC-enabled Spotify playlist, which allows Raspberry Pi to play it through the analog system. Even the buttons operate with the streaming tech.

Potentially complex, Brailsford attempts to explain his curious discovery in the video available below.
