Johannes Hermen in Germany has created a case made from an old tape deck! The ubiquitous Plexiglass once again makes an appearance, this time sprayed silver to make a new front cover. Is there no end to this materials versatility? We're sure you agree it looks stunning - is this the perfect DivX/MP3 box?

1. Beginnings

I found an old tape-deck in the cellar, which seemed to be a good case for the project because of it's size and design. First I had to remove everthing looking like a tape-deck, which was nearly everything ;-).
