Touch Screen Rotary Phone is Both Modern and Retro, At the Same Time

Mark Miller designed the Touch Screen Rotary phone, that can be considered some sort of “iPhone of the eighties”. It packs touch controls on the rotary, a backlit screen that shows the incoming called ID and an exterior that uses a frosted polycarbonate base, that glows when you receive a call.

This device supports both VOIP and landline calling, but we really need fixed phones any more?

    Yes, there is a need, mostly when you work at home and are required to be in stupid long teleconferences & meetings on the phone. A cel just doesn’t cut it; even when plugged in with a bluetooth headset, they just aren’t made for hours of continual operation like that, get hot easily, start to fail from that, etc…
