MiniDisc players? We're going Bluetooth, baby!

There’s life in the old disc yet.

The Bluetooth Minidisc

We’re way past the heyday of MiniDisc players (and even that period was short) but that doesn’t mean they’re completely dead—at least amongst enthusiasts.

Daniel Rojas managed to reverse engineer a MiniDisc Walkman to play music wirelessly, via a compact PCB from a Scosche wireless audio transmitter and Bluetooth. While this worked for playback, the recording hardware had to go but I guess you can’t have everything with a project like this.

Check out Daniel’s GitHub repository for more info on how he got it working.
