>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. https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/engineer-makes-cell-phone-with-rotary-dial/ http://www.justine-haupt.com/rotarycellphone/index.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us8Z4Pmr43U Absolutely based cunt.
