Alex Varanese ALT/1977 Pocket Hi-Fi

Alex Varanese marries 1970s design with modern technology with his project ALT/1977: We Are Not Time Travelers. Here’s what Varanese has to say about post-modern retro:

The irony is that all post-modern, smugly self-referential retro porn aside, I’d gladly trade in my immaculately designed 21st century gadgets for these hideously clunky, faux-wood-paneled pieces of über-kitsch. Sorry, Apple.

Ummm… nope, I’m keeping my immaculate Apple gear. But, there are many retro-cool ALT/1977 items and I like the Pocket Hi-Fi the best. Red LEDs!!!
