Rotary Cellphone Is A Distraction-Free Mobile Phone For All Of Us

It looks old, kind of odd, but it works. And unlike today's smartphones, this Rotary Cellphone will not distract your form whatever you're doing.

The appearance and development of the smartphone have significantly changed the entire world, but not just in a good way. Besides the convenience that we benefit from having a smartphone, this type of device also brings along a bunch of distracting things. More importantly, people don’t seem to care about the phoning ability of the phone anymore. So Justine Haupt created a special device, a mobile phone that has a rotary dial resembling the classic telephone from 40 years ago.

Kids these days may not be able to understand the idea behind this Rotary Cellphone or what the weird circular wheel on the phone is for. But for many of us, as adults, it brings vibes from the old days when touchscreens and other modern technologies seemed unreal.

On her website, Haupt reveals may detail on how she managed to create this phone. The dial came from a Western Electric Trimline phone that had hardware more compact than usual rotary telephone from the past. The device also comes with the needed electronics for making the dial interface using modern cellular SoC as well as a custom-designed board made in China, all packed into an enclosure that was 3D printed. Though the Rotary Cellphone can’t fit your pocket like a smartphone does, it’s surely compact and lightweight enough so you can pick up and hole while you’re talking with someone on the other end.

Despite its old look, the Rotary Cellphone does have several features like those on the smartphone like a 10-LED signal meter, a power switch sliding on and off, shortcut buttons that you can program to call certain people, as well as a curved e-paper that has two sections to display info such as missed calls.

Haupt’s website also shows pictures of how the Rotary Cellphone was put together, raw schematics, along with links to her original design files so that anyone can build their own rotary mobile phone.
