It’s A Portable Talking Box

Designer Bill Gould hates mobile phones but broke down and bought one. Amused at the thought, his coworkers asked for a picture and Mr. Gould came up with the Edi-Mobile concept as a joke. With a background in Industrial Archeology, he designed a phone Edison would have loved. The crank initiates the call and there’s a slide out numeric keypad, but the best bit is the 50 lb lead battery required to operate it. Unlimited text messaging not included.
