Mixxtape History

Mixxtape, first launched in 2013, has undergone several iterations and updates. The second generation was a huge success, garnering overwhelming support on Kickstarter with more than 1200% funding, and reaching customers in over 60 countries. The third generation was also well-received, earning a spot as one of the top 10 finalists at the prestigious 2019 CES Last Gadget Standing Competition.

Paul Who?

Growing up in the 80s, Paul Burns was captivated by the power of music, the Tandy computer, science fiction, cartoons, and pop culture. These interests shaped him into the inventor and entrepreneur he is today, known for creating innovative products that seamlessly merge design and functionality. He founded PAULTHINGS as a platform to share his inventions and bring his vision to life.

*Mixxtape is limited to the use in tape players that are not equipped with tape movement sensors. Most car stereos are equipped with tape sensors and therefore will not work, but it sounds incredible in a boombox, tape deck, or Walkman.
