The Pappa*Phone launched by Hulger is the world's first wooden VoIP phone. It was created by Furni, a company based in Montreal. The natural beauty of a single piece of American walnut can be seen from the phone's handset to the base while solid brass covers the middle portion.
The USB based wooden phone can be used with various VoIP services like Skype, iChat and Yahoo. The Pappa*Phone has no buttons or phone screen; dialing and navigating through its programs can be done using the computer interface, mouse keyboard and screen. In other words, the Pappa*Phone only delivers the basic functions of a traditional landline phone: speaking and listening.
