Whether it's old mix tapes made by exes or an obscure Kid Dynamo album bought before everything went digital, us nostalgic types all have a shoe box or two full of old analog cassette tapes. Every now and again I get the urge to dig back into them, but I don't even have a deck to play them on anymore.

The USB Cassette Archiver solves this problem by archiving cassettes to MP3 with a simple USB plug in and software for both Macs and Windows. It's available for $169 at FredFlare. Now all you have to do is figure out how to preserve the homemade cover art.
