IP tin can phone slightly better than string version
Remember when kids used to play stickball, marbles, and hopscotch instead of iPhone games? Well I don’t either. But this Kickstarter project wants to revive a medium of simpler times — with a modern twist.
The Can is a tin can telephone wired for IP phone use. It has a microphone, a speaker, and a jack for your computer, phone, or tablet so you can pretend you’re 7 years old and it’s 1939 again.
Aside from its patently ridiculous design, alternately listening to and speaking into The Can seems like more fun than just slapping a regular phone to your skull.
As the video below shows, The Can comes in Commander and Mini editions, with the former featuring an indicator light for missed calls. The Mini, meanwhile, jacks into your cell phone with a TRS connector.
