You may remember our previous post about the the Tape adapter + iPod shuffle idea. Looks like he's at it again.

Here is an update on the ShuffleDeck. It seems that it cannot be done because the tape adapter contains gears inside. Apparently, both the wheels have to turn or else the tape player will reject the device. The gears take up too much room, so it seems that the Shuffle will be unable to fit. But I have not yet abandoned the idea of using a tape deck, so now we have the ShuffleMount !
As you can see from the video [direct .mpg video link], this device uses the tape deck for play through and holding the iPod. Now playing the Shuffle through your car is a simple snap in. No cords to mess with, or radio stations to adjust. Just snap it in!
This is quite a slick hack! This is why I love this blog! The creativity of our hackster readers never ceases to amaze me. Great job Roland! This seems like something that would make a great product. It also looks simple enough for our readers to create.
Any plans for making a few of these and selling them Roland? Maybe I just need to start up a company to help shufflehacksters sell their wares. We could create our own cottage industry. I know I have my shufflephones idea I would like to realize as a real product someday. Just an idea.
I've added a flickr set with stills from Roland's video if you can't get the video to work or just like pictures better.
