We've noticed people like to outfit or pair their tech with nostalgic media like cassette tapes or old school turntables. Urban Outfitters recently curated all their retro-inspired tech accessories in one spot that we thought could spark some ideas in terms of dressing up your tech, especially for Halloween.

80s Cell Phone Case ($20): With Halloween coming up next month, you could have a lot of fun with this 80s inspired phone case as a hilarious, bulky prop. This phone case definitely falls under the "just for fun" purchases and is sure to amuse those around you.

WeSC Bongo Headphones ($76): A pair of high tech yet stylish headphones by WeSC. It comes with the convenience of any good set of headphones: a noise-cancelling earcup, adjustable headband and is lightweight. It doesn't scrimp on style and we love the simple heart design.

Stereoluxe AM/FM Radio and MP3 Dock ($199): How cool is this combo universal dock and AM/FM radio? It looks like something our grandparents used to have except you can plug your iPod or MP3 player into it. It also comes with an AC power adapter.

iPad Piano Apprentice ($130): Garage Band taught us how to play instruments, but if you need the actual feel of a keyboard, this iPad piano apprentice with a lighted keyboard will have you making tunes in no time. Set your iPad up with it and download the free app that comes with the keyboard to learn how to play. There are built-in speakers and a headphone jack if you want to get serious and start composing.

Crosley AV Room Portable Turntable ($160): For aspiring DJs or people looking to put their records back to life. The turntable plays 7'' and 12'' records but also has built-in software for your MP3 players. It's Mac and PC compatible and is USB ready. Get spinning.

USB Amp Speaker ($24): These USB speaker is designed to look like a mini amp. You can control the bass, treble and volume with the different knobs on the speakers. For a little guy, this speaker has good sound quality and is battery-powered so you can easily take it to a party and different rooms in your house.
