The 1950s internet phone

In what we’re sure will be a regular feature, Retro To Go presents "Only In Japan".

For our first instalment, we present this 50s internet phone, ideal for those of you who thought the 70s internet phone was just a little too modern for your taste.

The DC-NCTEL1 from Digital Cowboy (to give it the correct name) plugs into your computer like any other Skype or VoIP phone, so you can dial your mates for free all over the world. The only difference is the look.

Currently it’s not available outside Japan, but if you ask the people at Digital Cowboy nicely, they might sell you one.
