Stereolizer Turns your iPad in an 80s Boombox

The Stereolizer makes your iPad look and work like an old stereo system from the 80s -- complete with a tape deck for virtual tapes.

Simply use the tuner to find your favourite station, plop in a tape and record your favourite bit of radio broadcast, just like in the old days. Kinda -- no untangling of the magnetic tape from out of the player or wishing the DJ would stop talking while your favourite tune is playing.

And, at the very least, once the novelty wears off, the app will be a nice reminder that no matter how vintage tapes are or how warm the sound from an LP is, that you don't need to get up every half an hour to put something else on. Thank you, MP3 Players.
