CB Transceiver for iPhone Looks Silly, Sends You Back a Few Decades

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  March 16, 2012


Remember those old CB radios with the huge microphones you spoke into? My dad told me a story once of how these radio used to be the “cellphones” of their time. They were huge when he was in college, and he and his friends would use this to communicate with each other (and with girls, if you can believe it.)

If you used one of these back in the day, then it’s time to take a step back through time because CB transceivers are back – not for your old radios, but for your iPhones.

Apparently, some folks thought it would be fun to create a microphone in the form of a bulky transceiver so you can use high-tech communications technology with a low-tech device. The Tomko Transceiver for iPhone works just like an old CB radio, with a “push-to-talk” capability during phone calls that mutes the person on the other end of the line. It’s also got a volume control dial on the side, and can be used to control iTunes as well.

Personally, I’m not very fond of phone accessories that have been made almost a hundred times larger than they need to be just for aesthetics or novelty purposes. But if the Tomko Transceiver for iPhone is up your alley, then don’t let me stop you. It’s available from Strapya World for 1,540 JPY (~$19 USD).
