File this one under “how does this product not exist yet?” Apparently there are many mp3 to audio cassette adapters and they’re all like this Belkin one with a wire dangling out that you plug directly into your headphone jack- unchanged since the days of the portable cd player. But now Ion Audio has announced the Cassette Adapter Bluetooth that does away with the wire.
The adapter uses bluetooth to create a wireless solution to streaming music from your phone or making hands-free calls. Ideal for anyone driving a classic car (or an old beater) that doesn’t want to or can’t change out the entire stereo unit. Or play it in your old school boombox. The adapter has a USB rechargeable battery that’s good for 6 hours of playtime. No pricing or release date yet. (via gizmodo)
