When we got our first Walkman for Christmas we were so damn excited. We slipped in our Green Day Insomniac cassette, maybe followed with a little Ace Of Base, and just listened for hours in our Grandma’s rocking chair. A cool mod project can retrofy your modern gadgets to experience the same excitement as you had with the ancient ones, while also acting as an anti-theft measure.
Hiding your iPod inside of an old Walkman will not only instill a sense of nostalgia, but will deter criminals from grabbing your ear buds right from your grasp. Because what’s the point of stealing a Walkman, you can get them at, like, dollar stores now. — Andrew Dobrow
