ELBOW Portable Cassette Player


A slice of “retro” for the Future - with “ELBOW” being a next-generation portable cassette player concept, designed to bring the audio cassette back to prominence. Relive the glory of the 80s-90s with a revival/reboot!

Currently in prototype stage, here is a video and a selection of images to whet you tech gadget-loving appetites - with all images and future updates via their Facebook Page.

"ELBOW was first conceived by the audiovisual art duo BrainMonk as a cool side-project. Tired of the industry-dominating smart devices and touch screens, the designers wanted to create something immediate and tactile. For the life-long music fans, a cassette player seemed like the perfect project to stretch creative muscles and innovate.

ELBOW design concept, which condensed portable player to it's bare essence, has been well received by the design community (winning two competition awards) and cassette tape aficionados. Now ELBOW has entered prototype stage, where we are figuring out the physical and financial realities of the project."

I’m not a huge fan of having a “coffee table” (*Not that I “despise” it, I just don;t need a coffee table where I’m at :p), BUT it would be utter retro-bossilicious to blog on a cassette tape study table!!!

Power Pink Can for MONTANA-CANS by Buff Monster

A post shared by buffmonster (@buffmonster) on


Available to order on BuffMonster.com (10am EST) are POWER PINK CAN for Montana Cans by Buff Monster. “Artist Branded Spraycans”, folks!

"Of course, it’s every graffiti writers dream to have their own can of paint. Of course, I haven’t painted graffiti in a LONG time, but I do use spray paint for all the murals that I create. MONTANA-CANS has the best pinks on the market so it was natural I’d collaborate with them on this project.

The artwork for the can was originally drawn by hand (with a brush, as usual) and then it was carefully colored on the computer. Although it might be hard to see in the photos, I let as much of the silver of the metal can show through the design.

Each can will be signed by me. Each order will be shipped ground, so if you live outside of the contiguous United States, you’ll just have to look for the unsigned cans in your local paint store."
