>Engineer Makes a DIY Cell Phone With Rotary Dial So She Doesn’t Have to Use a Smartphone
>Justine Haupt has spent the last three years developing the old school device so that it can fit in her pocket, get better reception, and maintain a battery life of up to 30 hours.
>When she wrote about the retro cell phone on her blog, the website crashed from the sheer number of visitors clamoring to admire the retro gadget.
>“I never expected to go viral with this,” Haupt said. “I didn’t want to sell it at first but everyone was clamoring and I got so many emails from people begging to buy a phone, and (then) someone suggested I should make a kit.”
>Customers can buy the kit, which includes the circuit board and the 3D printed parts, from her company Sky’s Edge for $170—although they will have to source their own rotary dial.
>“Now I’m looking at making a more inclusive kit that will come with everything you need,” Haupt added.
Absolutely based cunt.
