Steampunk Rotary Smartphone in Digital Era!
Is there space for old school guises in the digital revolution? I think there is, which is why steampunk is alive. Settling the Digital v/s Mechanical dispute with his Rotary Mechanical Smartphone, designer Richard Clarkson gives us a smartphone that is so very tangible that its aura speaks for itself! Stalling the ‘digital-take-over’, the phone features two interchangeable brass dials, a true rotary dial and a button dial. Whats really clever is that the act of changing these is inspired from changing the lenses on a camera! Electroplated copper with a coat of paint completes the body-job. Meant for the steampunk and minimalistic fans, this phone is sure to favors across the lines.
