Ridiculous, But You'll Still Want This Bluetooth Device

You know when something is registers as utterly ridiculous and unnecessary, but there's still this itch in back the head telling you "WANT THIS"? That's the illogical reaction upon seeing this 1980's Brick Phone Bluetooth handset/earpiece...

You just pair the 80's Brick Phone with your Bluetooth capable cell phone and when you get a call on your phone, you answer it on your Brick Phone. You don't even have to take your "modern day" cell phone out of your pocket. When you're done with the call, you just hang up. That's it. The 80's Brick Phone charges via a mini usb cable that you can simply plug in to your computer.

Put away your velcro closure wallet, Zac. The 80's Brick Phone is currently in funding mode, so you'll need to hope (and perhaps invest yourself) the project receives sufficient funding over at indiegogo. Los Angeles industrial designer, Brad Helmink, will send you one at a pre-order funding price of $45, a small price to pay to satiate you inner Gordon Gecko.
