1972 Pioneer Hipac tape player

Recommended Posts

It came to life in 1972 Japan to challenge Philips' Compact Cassette and...failed. Here's another product of "Muppet Labs, Japan" that "Techmoan" found at a Japanese auction site. At the time, a Google! search for "Hipac" yielded nothing, but after this, Wikipedia may never be the same. Much smaller than an 8 track cartridge, this system looks like a PlayTape cartridge, which leads to an investigation and ends up with puppets of "The Moan" family.;)
