A Rotary Dial Cell PhoneAuthor:Bryan Anthony
A main theme behind steampunk design is trying to discover how products would look today if technology advanced, but never quite changed, from its late 19th century aesthetic. Hence, a cell phone with a rotary dial. Designer Richard Clarkson has created the Rotary Mechanical Smartphone that features two interchangeable brass dials (a true rotary dial and a button dial.) The phone is then covered in Electroplated copper and given a paint job to finish off the retro-futuristic look.
As of now the phone is still only a concept, but with the growing cadre of steampunk fans out there, I wouldn’t be surprised to see these phones on the street before long.
