Carsette is a smart phone docking port, with a familiar form of a classic cassette tape player that used to be in old cars. Carsette brings back old nostalgic memory with its docking experience. Instead of sliding in a cassette tape, driver slides the smart phone into the slot which automatically connects with the car. Once inserted, driver can play music, accept/decline phone calls, and activate voice assistant. Safely docked phone prevents it disturbing drivers while they are driving.
Cassette tape player in a car has become obsolete with rise of new technology. But we miss the analog feeling of pushing in square tapes to play music. We may be able to relive the old experiences by designing it a little smarter.
