Do you resent all this new-fangled technology cluttering up our lives with it’s seamless and sleek industrial design? Do you yearn for the overwrought and clumsy elegance of Victorian construction?
If so, check out Franc, the Analog Tele-Phonographer ($625), from artist Christopher Locke. I’ll allow you to charge your iPhone 4, 4S, and 5. The music will receive some sort of boost from the horn section, but let’s be honest, it’s no speaker.
Anyway, if that’s the sort of thing that tickles your fancy, let Locke know right away; supplies are limited.
