1980s-style Bluetooth Brick Phone by Shisa Labs

Brickphone

In the '80s, a 'Brick' handset was only available to the affluent few. But in 2012, the Bluetooth Brick Phone by Shisa Labs is an altogether more affordable proposition.


Yes, same brick shape, with old school digits on the front, but accessed by modern-day Bluetooth, pairing easily with 2012 mobile phones, which means you can keep your iPhone or Android smartphone (or any Bluetooth-enabled phone) in your bag or pocket, showing off with something far more eye-catching instead. Be great to have on your desk, that's for sure.

The Brick makes and receives calls in 'high quality' digital audio, with a backlit keypad allowing you to dial up your friends and family. There's also an alphanumeric LED display for menu navigation and a colour choice of  Classic White, Neon Blue, Neon Green, and Hot Pink.

Standing 13 inches tall, the Brick is available to order from July, Priced at $99. Find out more at Shisa Labs or grab it from Kickstarter next month.
