Awesome antique gadget with ultra clear sound quality since U got Gramophone and huge Mic
HUH. What the **** is this. Nice work-looks like it was designed by an Accountant.
Whad ya mean, new inventions are almost always put together from spare parts of old crap These things were stat of the art when I bought them
This looks like a classical gramophone machine which plays music and telephone just like today's mobile phone with MP3 facility well done
I'm in love with this chop. Actually would love to make a call using this baby. Congrats on the silver, Hits.
Congratulations. I guess I should recall what a custom-designed Sheffield Lab Tube/Stereo microphone looked like. Okay-it's a Masterful invention...for the first run that is. I have to send this to the Chief Eng. from Sheffield's past.
It's said that animals can enjoy life more than humans because they never have to stop and answer the phone. The company called Petsmobility attempted to change that. In 2005 they developed the world's first cell phone for dogs - Petcell, attached to a dog's collar. You could easily call your dog (the call would be automatically answered) and give commands to your pet, or simply talk to it so that your dog does not feel alone. If the dog would bark (possible sign of danger - e.g. house or car burglary) a call to your number would initiate and you could hear what's happening and give your dog commands. It was a very handy thing to have for those dog owners who have to leave dogs on their own when they are at work or away for some other reason. The Petcell price was on the expensive side - about $400, and after 7 years of operations and $120 mln of investor capital, Petsmobility closed its doors in 2012, citing slow sales. Well, it was good while it lasted...
Photoshop animals using cell phones.
All types of animals (except humans) are allowed - e.g. birds,
insects, aquatic life, mammals, etc.
Many thanks to JannaR for the themepost.
As people are rapidly changing their cell phones for latest models, our life is becoming more and more "mobile" - the mobile internet and apps replace the good old computer with software. We are so attached to our cell phones, that we no longer imagine our lives without them. Let us imagine how mobile phones would change people's lives if they were invented and used since centuries ago.
Photoshop cell phones used (any way you wish) in the famous works of art (paintings, statues, or frescos). The themepost provides a good example (many thanks to Eyal).
The history of mobile phones as we know them started with the introduction of Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, which was the first cell phone offered commercially in 1984. It was a huge brick-like phone which measured 10 inches (not including its flexible "rubber duck" whip antenna), weighed 28 ounces and cost $3,995 ($9209 in present-day terms). Motorola paid $20m (almost $50m in today's money) to 20th Century Fox to promote DynaTAC 8000X as Gordon Gekko's phone in "Wall Street" (1987). After that the sales of DynaTAC 8000X skyrocketed and doubled Motorola's annual revenue.
Photoshop antique cell phones, or give the modern mobile phones the antique look.
On one of the Oprah's recent shows, she had a piece with Dr. Oz where he explained that cell phones kill more people each year than any guns and weapons. How? Besides cellphones allegedly raising risks of cancer, talking on cell phones over 4 hours a day has been linked to headaches, higher blood pressure, insomnia, depression, and even strokes.
But the worst, deadly, use of cell phones comes from texting and talking while driving, as well as pedestrian talking while crossing streets - the number of accidents caused by such cell phone use is higher than from DUI in some states. In other words, cell phones can be more dangerous than weapons, so be careful about how long you use them as well as where you use them. Stay safe!
To raise public awareness on how dangerous cell phones can be, combine any weapons with cell phones.
As people are changing their cell phones for latest models, there's a growing problem of what to do with the old cell phones. In most states it is illegal to just throw away cell phones, due to environmental harm (especially due to old nickel cadmium batteries which are highly toxic). Legal ways to dispose cell phones are usually giving it to charities (who then give the phones to poor people in other countries) or to special cell phone collection centers (e.g. Verizon Wireless Hopeline) which are paid to recycle cell phones.
Does an old cell phone really have to be trashed? Your mission is to see if you can recycle them and put them to use for something other than the trash bin. Photoshop new uses for these old cell phones.
Here's a good example.
