Working Tin Can Handset Needs to Be Funded ASAP

by Lambert Varias

It’s not unusual to see kids using tin cans tied with a piece of string as a phone, but if Monkey Wrench Design has its way, you’ll see adults using tin cans to communicate. And not in a pretend way. You see, MWD has made The Can, a USB handset with a tin can case.

The Can works just like tin can phones, except it actually works. Plug it to your computer, speak into the can and then put it to your ear to hear your chat mate’s response. If you’re a killjoy and refuse to put a can to your ear, just increase the volume on your computer and you should be able to use The Can as a speakerphone. MWD also made the Mini Can, a smaller version that plugs in via the 3.5mm jack, so you can use it on the go.

Call your friends and tell them to support The Can and Mini Can on Kickstarter. A pledge of at least $25 (USD) gets you a Mini Can, while a pledge of at least $37 gets you The Can. There are special variations and DIY kits as well, so go check it out.
