Folks who know me in the real world (there’s a real world, I hear some of you cry) know that I have a fondness for anachronistic technology. I’ve got a 10 MB hard drive, a mylar tape, and an actual 64K core board (ask your father if you don’t know what this means).  I also repair watches as a hobby.  That’s what got my attention about this absolutely amazing looking phone from Ulysse Nardin.

the handset {…} will incorporate a visible, fully-functional kinetic rotor that will apparently assist in providing power, just like you might find in a mechanical wristwatch.

And, yes, they’re serious about that “No. 1 of 1846” business, they’re apparently not making many. No really, if you want to get me one for my birthday, I wouldn’t object…
