Woman builds fully-functioning rotary-dial mobile phone

If you’re old school enough to remember rotary-dial phones, someone has built a fully-functioning rotary-dial cell phone!

Justine Haupt, an engineer with the US Department of Energy, built the working model. She said it took her 3 years.

So many people were interested in seeing it and learning how she did it that it crashed her website.

This has got to be the funniest looking mobile phone ever, but much respect to her for being creative enough to make it happen!
