Rotary-Dial iPhone Dock is Now Doubly Obsolete

by Paul Strauss

Now that I’ve got my new iPhone 5, I either have to wait for some new docks to come out, wait for my Apple lightning-to-30-pin adapter to show up sometime in October, or buy a dock that supports AirPlay and don’t worry about charging while docked. This dock solves absolutely none of that, but I still like it.


What you’re looking at here is an iPhone dock that’s made out of an old rotary-dial telephone. It’ll charge your phone via either USB or your Apple wall adapter (not included). Remember those? Heck, I don’t even have a landline anymore. But it’s still kind of a fun way to charge up your iPhone or iPod Touch, plus it’s got a pair of 3w speakers built in. Yes, that’s right, this thing is a stereo.


These docks are made by Bryan Sharp over at Rotary Revival, and they come in a variety of colors and phone styles (basically whatever old junk phones Bryan can source), and some even have a wireless remote with pause/play and volume controls. They sell for $125 to $199 (USD) over on Etsy.


It’s too bad the rotary dial doesn’t do anything. It’d be cool if you could use it to adjust volume or change tracks. But before I demand Bryan adds that feature, I just want my 8-pin Lightning connector.
