Srinagar, Apr 28 : A scholar Ghulam Mohi-ud-din claims to have invented an electro-mechanical cassette player, which according to him reduces battery power consumption by more than 85 per cent compared to conventional cassette players in the market.
"When people go for outings and picnics one cannot use a normal cassette player for long because of limited power of battery cells. This cassette player uses less electricity. Once it is in the market, I'll contact Sony, Panasonic and Philips, and will consult them. I'll make sure this cassette payer is implemented and commercialized," he said.
Bhat, who is the Director of the University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC) in Kashmir University has also patented his product registering it with the patent office, Government of India.
Bhat added that it would prove beneficial for the region as it faces an acute power shortage during winters.
He holds another patent granted in 2007 for the 'design of a novel technique for secure message communication on Optical Fibre Links.'
