First of all, I would just like to say that I love how the Comet Mobile Phone Booth was invented by boys--just saying. That said, we all know that phone booths are rapidly falling into extinction; if there are more creative inventions like this, however, that might not be the case any longer.

Taking a retro salon hair dryer and reprogramming it to make calls, the Comet Mobile Phone Booth makes it look like that was the intention of the hair dryer to begin with. The phone booth was designed by students; check out their first phone call in the video above.
