TEFIFON – The 1950s tape player that was actually a record player!

What the hell is this thing? Well, basically it’s one of the coolest old pieces of technology I’ve ever seen in my life. Way before the 8 track, this strange device used a spool of “tape” wound inside a plastic box nearly exactly like an 8 track tape, but instead of magnetic media, there’s actually grooves carved into the tape!

What’s even more surprising is the sound quality is actually quite good!

Techmoan is quickly becoming my favorite youtube channel.
