Yes, you read the headline correctly. The cassette may be gone from today’s market, but it certainly is not gone from a number of cars that are still on the road. The company rep points out, correctly, that millions of these vehicles are still on the road and something needs to be done for all of those drivers.
So, IonAudio has designed a cassette with Bluetooth connectivity to play your music and also allow for hands-free calls through your car’s audio system. That wasn’t all the company showed off. There was also Flashcube, another Bluetooth device, but this one is an all-in-one sound system. It can even be controlled via a mini remote control. You can control the color of the lights coming out of it and even link two together for stereo sound.
The Cassette adapter will retail for $39, while the speaker will set you back $129. Both devices will be available this spring.
