Go Retro With NINM Lab’s ‘IT’S OK’ Bluetooth Cassette Player

With the resurgence of vintage audio players like the vinyl turntable and Walkman, it comes as no surprise that a number of independent manufacturers are diving deeper into the realm of analog than ever before. The latest development in the realm of all-original audio comes in the shape of NINM Lab’s ‘IT’S OK’ — a Bluetooth-capable cassette player that brings retro nostalgia into the modern-day.

The ‘IT’S OK’ recalls some of our favorite principles from early-era cassette players, including the implementation of AA batteries, an iconic rectangular design, and visible internals that give you a first-hand look at the tech’s moving parts. If you’re lucky enough to have a few cassettes laying around, they’ll pop right in; but, if you’re like us, it’s likely that you’ll rely on the player’s integrated Bluetooth and 3.5mm audio jack — features that are entirely new to the medium. The ‘IT’S OK’ also comes in three different colorways — Sakura, Cloud, and Evening — giving buyers a trio of devices to accent their own personal style. If you’d like to pick up your own retro player, head over to the company’s Kickstarter page.  For just $75, you’ll be able to relive your cassette-laden past (albeit, with a modern twist).

Kickstarter: $75+
