The 80s were a decade full of iconic technology products that have stood the test of time and are still relevant today. Carl Fritjofsson, founder of Rewind, has been working on bringing these products back to life by re-designing and modernizing them while preserving their original 80s feel and look.

The idea behind Rewind is to revive these products and make them relevant in today’s market. The first product that Fritjofsson is bringing back to life is a pair of unique headphones that harken back to the 80s-era Walkman. But that’s just the beginning. Fritjofsson has plans to revive other retro music technology pieces from the 80s such as boomboxes, cassette players, and more.

The campaign for Rewind has just launched, and so far, 121 people have backed the campaign, raising $5,228. Fritjofsson’s goal is to raise $30,000 in the remaining 24 days of the crowdfunding campaign.

The idea of reviving 80s music gear is not only cool, but it’s also very fitting for this era. We are a generation of people who are slightly obsessed with reviving the 80s and 90s, whether that be through fashion or music. We have already seen a resurgence in vinyl sales, with young collectors driving sales. It’s becoming a ‘thing’ to own something that is a ‘blast from the past.’

These 80s revival music pieces have the ability to do well in terms of sales, and there may be a lot of interest in the products. But right now, the re-production and updating of future 80s products fall in the hands of the crowdfunding campaign and its success.

Crowdfunding has become a popular way for entrepreneurs and creators to launch their ideas and products. It allows people to invest in something they believe in and be a part of bringing it to life. Crowdfunding has given many people the opportunity to start a business or create something that they may not have been able to otherwise.

With the success of crowdfunding campaigns such as the Pebble smartwatch, the Coolest Cooler, and the Ouya gaming console, it’s clear that there is a market for innovative and unique products. The Rewind campaign has the potential to be just as successful, but it will depend on Fritjofsson’s ability to market the products and his ability to sell the idea of reviving 80s music gear.

If Fritjofsson is successful in his campaign, it could open up a whole new market for retro music gear. It could also inspire other entrepreneurs and creators to bring back other iconic products from the past and update them for today’s market.

Overall, the idea of reviving 80s music gear is a cool and unique concept that has the potential to do well in terms of sales. It’s a great example of how innovation and nostalgia can come together to create something new and exciting. Whether or not the Rewind campaign reaches its goal, it’s clear that the idea of bringing back iconic products from the past is something that people are interested in, and we may see more of it in the future.

    Great article Charlotte! Do you know if they are crowdspeaking? I read on Bitly that it is one of the hottest social trends of 2016.

    Vinyl, acid-washed jeans. Let’s reanimate Ronald Reagan, too.

    This investment will result in investor money being worth what it was in the 80s.
