Is your smartphone not retro enough for you? Does it have you longing for an old-fashioned landline phone? Do you wish you could cradle it on your shoulder while you handwrite that letter to grandma? Well, a company called Yubz is set to solve those problems for you with the Retro Handset that plugs into any mobile device including the iPhone and laptops.
Nope, it's not a joke. Yubz claims that their retro handset reduces the radiation emitted by smartphones. The handsets come in a variety of colors and patterns (including one inspired by the movie Full Metal Jacket) and retails for $49.95. Unfortunately I just don't see too many people carrying one of these around with them and whipping it out when they make or receive a call, but I could see someone using it at home, particularly in their office when they need to type on a separate device.
Check out the website for more info and to see all of the colors and options.
