The Cup Communicator by Duncan Wilson

There is nothing like the old school, especially when you are talking about the neat telephones that one used to talk to their neighbor using a very long string and two cups. Behold the Cup Communicator by Duncan Wilson, walkie talkies designed to look like that very same paper cup telephone.

The use of the Cup Communicator, like the paper cup telephone that it is based on is simple, just tug the cord to activate, squeeze to talk and hold to the mouth and ear. Even though this is a very simple and basic walkie talkie we feel that the unique design earns it a second look. It's always fun to see a childhood staple re-invented in a modern way, making it something we would not only use as adults but would also look pretty neat in our homes.

What do you think? Is this something that grown up you would like to own? Or is this just another product created to cash in on our nostalgia for a simpler time?
