Steampunk phone works with a punch card

Steampunk phone works with a punch cardForget about your sleek iPhones and your Samsungs and Nokias. Here’s a phone you can rock like it’s 1899. This steampunk phone is a prototype by Arthur Schmitt, a modern day Londoner, not a Londoner from Victorian times.

It sports a wire cover over the earpiece, period gauges, visible screws, a spinning number-counter and more. Perhaps the coolest detail is that it uses punch cards and binary phone numbers to control the phone’s features and make calls. Now that’s progress that makes phonebooks look like rolodex’s. “Can you hear me through me amazingly thick mustache now?”

Samsung TL9 sports car gauges
The Samsung TL9 camera is definitely inspired by your dashboard, which is kinda cool. Otherwise it’s pretty ho-hum as far as camera specs. Some specs include: 10-megapixel resolution, a 2.7 inch LCD, 5x optical zoom, maximum ISO of 1600, and Dual Image Stabilization.

Interestingly, it features MP3/PMP capability. The two empty/full analog gauges show the remaining battery life and memory storage. The Samsung TL9 is priced at $280. Perfect for those who are only capable of reading gauges and have been confused by every other camera that ever was.
