With a lot of creative energy going into designing mobile phones, landlines get left in the dust. Though it's true less and less people use a home phone, those who still utilize its services are stuck with boring old designs that look like they've come out of the early 90s. The Marc Schomann Homephone adds a little bit of style to that neglected market.

Looking sort of like a controller for the Nintendo Wii, the Marc Schomann Homephone uses a combination concept to make a call. Each number is on a dial so you simply twist each one till the numbers line up then you press call. So simple, yet so sleek. Stats for Tubular Telephones Trending: Older & Chilly
