iPhone Home Concept is Retro Futuristic and Somehow I’d See Steve Wozniak Using It

Steve Wozniak is the kind of person who likes to try out funky new gadgets and he’s actually one of the few Apple guys who doesn’t hide the fact that he’s also using tech from rival companies. Somehow I envision him using the following fixed phone, an Apple concept created by Erkan Candar from Germany.

It’s supposed to be a home phone, or office phone or your run of the mill fixed phone, that has all the goodness of the iPhone, but in a more… unmovable format. At its core it feels like an iPhone that receives a deformed alien head at the top. It feels like a shower head had a baby with a modern fixed phone and there’s nothing wrong with that. Experiments are always welcome on our site!

Dubbed the iPhone Home, the handset keeps the nifty screen of the iPhone, but adds the huge earpiece at the top and a base that’s used to charge the phone and possibly transmit data to it. The base also has its own call and reject call buttons and a big speaker included. There’s even a camera at the top of the receiver part and I’m guessing there’s also some videocalling cam somewhere for Full HD or why not Ultra HD videocalls, right?

This would cost $1000 and Wall Street tycoons would probably still buy it by the thousands.

    At a time when consumers are barking at Apple for removing the headphone jack and then forcing them to buy an add-on that supplies that jack, I really don’t see something like this being readily adopted. And then when we consider that it is now the “millennials” that are moving into adulthood, business-life, etc., they grew up using mobile phones exclusively. So I’m pretty sure they’d see this as extra bulk and weight that is completely unnecessary. Finally, In today’s world where mobile phones link into wifi for enhanced-services wifi-to-cell calling; the option to have virtual phone numbers; and other features/services, the idea of the “home phone” is pretty much dead (my opinion).

  • But what about the people buying into the whole vintage/used car/rotary phone/Lana Del Ray/hipster trend? People who dream about living in the 60s now?

    LOL. I feel sorry for them. The 60’s sucked. Those were my teen years. Well, that was the generation of the first Mustang, so maybe not that bad.
