The new gadget brought together lovers of modern smartphones and connoisseurs of retro-devices with disk dialing.
There is no word, our mobile phones are very convenient, but sometimes you feel like turning a pleasantly buzzing telephone disk with your finger …
Justin Haupt, an engineer at the Brookhaven National Laboratory of the US Department of Energy, went to meet these nostalgic moods, who developed a funny gadget – a real disk mobile phone.
Interestingly, it can be independently assembled by everyone, as in a children’s designer. Details for our time are quite ordinary: ATmega2560v motherboard, Adafruit Fona 3G cellular equipment and a rotary dial from a Western Electric Trimline phone. And all this in a case made by 3D printing.
The retro wonder is equipped with a flexible 2.1-inch electronic display, which displays missed calls and other important information, and shortcut buttons, which makes it possible to quickly select the desired contact.
As a true apologist and PR manager of his own invention, Justine Haupt in his daily life uses exclusively his own development.
