Victorian Retro Phone Handset: The past is calling!


There’s a good chance you’re acquainted with steampunk by now, right? For those of you that aren’t, think of Victorian era futurism. It’s a bit like what things would have been like if the technology from Star Trek existed during the 19th century. People love to dress up as if they are from a time that never was, and possibly the most annoying thing about being in period dress is pulling out a smartphone and ruining the illusion.

This is why the Victorian Retro Phone Handset was created! Of course, this would also be fun for history lovers, but it would be an excellent addition to any steampunk outfit. You won’t need to do set up as it’s plug and play for any standard 3.5mm jack, but you will need to deal with holding it somehow. Seeing as it only costs $20, it shouldn’t be terribly surprising that it’s made out of plastic and was only painted to look like its antique ancestors. The only downside I can see is that you might still need to handle the phone to answer the call. Maybe installing a button and Bluetooth capabilities would make this more appealing?
