Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what.

@jackbaty Ha, just this morning I was thinking where I could get a phone like this for home, not a cellphone really, wired line works for me as well 🤔

@mrkz @jackbaty
There are some VoIP endpoints (ATAs) which support pulse dialing. In my opinion, standard phones tied to the wall with a cord are the way to go!

@jackbaty Ooh, if dialling also generated power ... that would be ool.

And I love that curved ePaper display ...

@jackbaty When I saw this, my first thought was "That's awesome. I want one."

But then I remembered that the only thing I DON'T do with my phone is make voice calls.

@jackbaty OMG! This is amazing! I can't decide what is the best part, the rotary dial or the curved screen.

@tsturm @jackbaty absolutely the e-ink display is the best part to me.

That's really impressive looking, especially with a base of just an arduino, and the luxury of a e-ink display.

@jackbaty I... I really want one of these. With a separate speaking horn.

@jackbaty please have a modem port please have a modem port please have a modem port

Ok I'm building one and it will have a modem port AND a usb thing for use as a modem and it will use HAYES commands and when am I going to have time I don't care I am building one with a modem port


Go look at the rest of their projects. I'm officially a fan of this human.

3d printed concertina parts. People are awesome.

Genius! I want one!
(Could also be the basis of an interesting #Steampunk project)
