    Hmmm.. I think you’re having us on here! Looks like you’ve taken the clock from an oven and some sort of old phone and stuck them to the top bit of a front-loading washing machine… You sure this is a real thing????

  2. Robert Says:

    It’s obviously a ‘lap-phone’ prototype. Complete with a note taking surface, clock and built in calculator.

    It could be the communications console that Uhura uses on the Enterprise 😉

    I don’t know what it is but I definitely want one. This looks like the ultimate think to hack a bluetooth USB or Wifi thing into.
    I’m pondering about endless possibilities of adding skype, USB hubs, controlling everything with those beautiful buttons. Once you have it on your desk it becomes the ultimate control center.

  12. Richard Says:

    I am sure that is part of batmans computer from the batcave with all those unlabled buttons and bizzare shape.
