Phone frenzy.

The Olympia Du@l Phone.The world�s first cordless 2-in-1 Internet Skype telephone. Behold the future, peeps!

‘The Cordless DUALphone is a cordless telephone that can be connected to a normal telephone socket and a USB port on a PC. The display shows whether your friends who also use Skype, are online. If they are, you simply have to press the appropriate green button and talk to them for free � no matter where they are in the world. If their PC is switched off, or you want to call someone who doesn�t use Skype�, you simply press the other green button and call via the standard telephone connection.’


  • Aha, small world. The Cognitive Science department on campus purchased a pair of these, but I only saw them as part of a discussion on ridiculously bad user interfaces. Good idea wrapped in a terrifying UI.

  • Rats! Ah well, hopefully it’ll be the first of many more…
