Motion Detecting Telephone

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on September 1st, 2009

Motion Detecting TelephoneYou are going away on vacation and you want to make sure that your home is secure while you are away. What do you do? I’ll tell you what, you just buy a old-fashioned phone and let it do all of the work. The motion detecting telephone can detect anyone walking in the room and can be set to dial a pre-set number when motion is detected. It also has a built in microphone that records sound in the room and sends it to your mobile phone.

It connects to the telephone wall port just like any other phone and will cost you $59.95. It’s useless to those with animals though as their movement will just have them calling you at all hours while you are away.

DIY iPhone retro rotary dockHow cool would it be to dock your iPhone in a rotary telephone while running this app. This hack turns your old rotary phone into a cool iPhone docking station. It’s sure to sound great since it has 16 Watts of speaker power hidden in the device.

It sports one speaker behind the dial on the front of the phone and two speakers in the handset itself. The IR sensor and controls are on the side of the phone and the docking port is hidden under the receiver when the hand set is off. This is a pretty awesome mod if you have a 1940′s phone laying around. Video below.

Rotary Phone 4-Port USB Hub is crazyCheck out this insane device that calls itself a gadget. USB hubs are great and all, but a Rotary phone USB hub? It’s the kind of thing you give a tech blogger at the end of his career, to keep him from drooling all over the nursing home, just like you used to give those toy rotary phones to kids. And even then it’s not much of a laugh unless they try to make a call with it. It’s not something you want on your desk. Turning the dial opens and closes the hubs, which I guess is kinda cool, should someone hate you enough to gift you one. Available for $15.

Budweiser beer bottle telephone
Alright, so this is only cool to those who are easily amused and you know who you are. If this was your new phone, then you’d have to call your friends and tell them, “Dude I’m calling from a Bud bottle.” And of course hilarity would ensue. The best part is if you ever have a brawl in your living room, you can hit somebody on the head with your phone and hopefully it won’t leave you holding only shards and the neck of the bottle. Dial the number, then knock that other drunk bastard out just as his mom answers and you tell her to pick his sorry ass up. Yeah this phone is made for drunken fun, frat parties, and of course it’s perfect white trash decor.
