Future phone feature phone, with pink accents, in the key of Stanley Kubrick


When I was eight, this is exactly what I believed all devices would someday resemble.

The future is pink and dial-up.

    She really looks like an assassin.  I’m pretty sure that that little button nose shoots laser beams.

    You know what’s funny? Any one of us could build this from junk parts today. (OMG! Why am I not doing it??)

    Kubrick? I was thinking a prop from a Gerry Anderson show.

    It’s an impressively thin CRT.  Very futuristic.

    HELL0?  WHAT? I’M IN OUTER SPACE!  OUTER SPACE! WHAT?  NO, IT’S RUBBISH.  IT’S DARK AND COLD. CIAO!

    Pretty sure I have that selfsame model of briefcase, though in a fab late-seventies shade of chocolate brown.  But it’s very slipslidey.  I don’t know how she’s keeping hers perched on that bus station seat.  I couldn’t balance mine on my lap without spilling my briefs all over the damn place.

    Didn’t something like that turn up in Mission: Impossible?

    An early iPhone prototype, circa 1967.

    It looks like if the handset is actually placed in the cradle that the case will not come anywhere near closing. 

    • The New 1968 Lug-o-Phone Parisienne comes with all the features that today’s unmarried stewardess demands, including our revolutionary BulkTech Anti-latch system to prevent unsightly closure.  Remember, ladies, an open case means you’re always ready for the next caller.

    I do not own a cell phone precisely because they do not look like this.

    She stole the nuclear “football” from the President!

    I would give my left nut to have that for my cell phone.

    Or maybe Don Adams’ shoe.

    Reminiscent (or precursor…) of Oscar Goldmans exploding briefcase:

    Best toy ever when I was a kid.
