Hitachi RFID Cassette player

We needed a smart retro cassette player for room 204

We design all our puzzles here at Tick Tock Escape Room Toowoomba Queensland. Room 204 we needed a cassette tape player that would play different recordings and most importantly that each recording that was used would notify our server when played. So we searched for a cassette player. We found one on ebay that suited the theme of the room then we installed a RFID card reader and arduino inside with a RF Module. Each button press then had to have a micro switch installed so that it would function like the original just not with analog tapes.
