It's been raining '80s nostalgia gadgets around here lately. Between the Lasonic iPod boombox , Plusdeck EX cassette ripper, Speak & Spell speaker mod , and buckets of Transformerstschotkes--we're just waiting for Prince and John Cusack to pull up in front of CNET in a Delorean .

Here's another gadget to throw on the '80s retro-tech heap. The Suck UK Mix Tape USB is a Flash thumb-drive cleverly masquerading as a vintage Hitachi cassette tape. No word on pricing, but the product is poised to launch in the UK in September. But why wait? This looks like a totally rad project for those of you feeling both crafty and nostalgic. Hell, with so many promotional USB thumb-drives floating around, I'm sure we'll see some enterprising crafty geeks get their own version up on Etsy soon.
