As a tech-lover and a lover of all things vintage, Ryan at WOGA thought this was pretty cool! Engineer Justine Haupt desinged and built.. a rotary cell phone! And while you can’t text, the battery lasts 24 hours! No annoying texts, a cool vintage look, AND 24 hours on a charge?! Solid trade off!
Engineer Justine Haupt said:
“Why a rotary cellphone? Because in a finicky, annoying, touchscreen world of hyperconnected people using phones they have no control over or understanding of, I wanted something that would be entirely mine, personal, and absolutely tactile, while also giving me an excuse for not texting. …So it’s not just a show-and-tell piece… My intent is to use it as my primary phone. It fits in a pocket.; It’s reasonably compact; calling the people I most often call is faster than with my old phone, and the battery lasts almost 24 hours.”
