The video at the end of this article proves that some things can be both clever and horrible at the same time.

We've found (courtesy of The 8-Bit Guy) what surely must be the world's worst video recording format. Without wanting to give too much away at this stage, it uses an audio cassette - yes - a venerable C90! And, well, it just gets worse from there.

But don't be put off: this is a real feat of low-fi engineering ingenuity. It may not be very good, but it's really clever.
