MANCHESTER, England, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Nostalgia has never been hotter and the latest 'must have' gift harps back to the good old days of boy meets girl, vinyl and tape cassettes.
MIXA(TM) is a 1GB USB memory stick, masquerading as a tape cassette, which allows anyone to design their own version and give the gift of music and memories to friends, family or that special someone, creating a unique gift for any occasion.
The thing that makes MIXA(TM) so special is that people can design it completely with the recipient in mind, from the sleeve design to the content itself which could simply be favourite music tracks - just like back in the 80's - as well as photographs, video clips or any other digital stuff.
Ordered online (http://www.makeamixa.com) 'MIXA-makers' are taken through a simple process to design the sleeve with their own photos, but it's once the MIXA(TM) arrives that the fun really starts. MIXA(TM) is plugged into a PC or Mac via a retractable USB port and filled with music, photos, videos...or a mixture of all of them. Then as a final flourish, the cassette can be customised further with the gloriously retro sticker set - for the personal touch that makes a MIXA(TM) the ultimate gift.
Whether it's a "holiday" MIXA(TM) containing favourite club tracks and those embarrassing snaps of the morning after; a "love you loads" MIXA(TM) with special songs and photos from over the decades; an "I want you back" MIXA(TM) or even a "did I ever tell you I used to be a man", MIXA(TM), this is one gift that truly puts the personal experience back into giving and receiving.
Visit http://www.makeamixa.com and make a gift that will be remembered forever.
MIXA(TM) retails for just GBP19.99 (excluding shipping) and includes USB extension cable and sticker set.
Notes to Editors:
The BETA version of MIXA(TM) was launched in October 2007 and received positive feedback from consumers and the design community alike. Since then the product has been developed to include the new retractable USB - one of the main requests from users involved in the first phase of launch. This new version will be launched to a general consumer audience from early June 2008. Further developments and Limited Edition MIXAs will follow later in 2008.
MIXA(TM) is made by interactive design house magneticNorth, or mN to its friends.
Working out of the UK, the mN team creates a wide range of different interactive design projects - from websites to installations and even the occasional pimped up digital garden gnome. Whilst mN loves all things digital, they also love people and often lie awake at night thinking about what all this techy voodoo means to you, us and our mums.
Which is why mN are busy creating products such as MIXA(TM) - a response to the disappearance of touchy-feely stuff in the digital world.
