3D Printed Case Turns iPhones into Rotary Dial Phones

by Paul Strauss

If there’s one thing I truly don’t miss about land-line telephones, it’s the really old rotary dial phones. Not only did it take so much longer to dial numbers on these phones, but it was really easy to make a mistake on them. Thankfully, rotary phones have gone the way of the dinosaurs. But if still you long for the days of the dial, you can add one to your iPhone.

Thanks to the miracles of 3D printing tech, designer Joa Baldwin was able to produce this clever iPhone case with a rotary dial built into it. You can’t actually use it to dial numbers, but it has a coil spring which allows it to spin back to its original position when dialed. Since the printing is pretty intricate, you’ll need to follow the tips in the video below to ensure that the dial turns smoothly.

Stick your finger in your web browser and dial up (SH)APE-WAYS, where you can buy the rotary dial iPhone case for about $20(USD). While you’re over there, be sure to grab a bacon mobius strip – guaranteed to taste like plastic, not bacon.
