Rocket Phone Blasts Off
Here’s a wacky mobile phone out of China that looks like it’s ready to lift off into orbit. The Shenzhou VII rocket phone conjures up images of 1950s science fiction with its orange spaceship design. While it is definitely different, the shape isn’t particularly practical.

Lomo Diana Camera Produces Crummy (Artistic) Images
The Diana camera was a really cheap plastic camera that was made by the Great Wall Plastic Factory in Hong Kong in the 1960s. At the time, it was just that, a piece of junk.

Tubular Clock Tells Time With Words

Tubular Clock Tells Time With Words
Like Art Lebedev’s (vaporware) Verbarius clock, this unique timepiece uses words to describe the current time, rather than using numbers. Time is displayed on the Tubular Time Clock in phrases such as “quarter past four” and “five minutes past six” instead of the pedestrian “4:15” and “6:05.”

See Through Clock Projects the Time

Nokia’s Clear Boombox

Nokia’s Clear Boombox
This cool boombox comes from an unlikely source, mobile phone maker Nokia. The minimal briefcase-style design features a unique transparent plastic enclosure.
