Artist Love Hulten is back with another awesome retro-inspired piece. The MTC 2401 is a custom cabinet that looks just like the IBM 2401 Magnetic Tape Unit – a computer relic that dates back to the mid-1960s. It features blinking lights, spinning tape reels, and it makes vintage computer noises. Every office needs one.

Artist Love Hultén is a master at creating interactive electronic works inspired by retro technology. While the MCP Cassette Player isn’t as complex as say, his VOC-25 synthesizer, it’s still a fun piece. It’s basically a tape player that looks like a wind-up toy and lets its user control the tape’s playback speed with analog control.

VOC-25 Vocal Synthesizer

Love Hultén has designed and built many wonderful things over the years. His latest creation is a synthesizer that moves 25 sets of mechanical teeth in concert with its keyboard. It’s both disturbing and fantastic at the same time. If the idea seems familiar, that’s because he was inspired by Simone Giertz’s toothy instrument.
