Mashable – UK company O2 has collaborated with designer Sean Miles to create fully functional phones using recycled handsets and vintage shoes. This upcycling project, called “Walkie Talkies,” is part of the communication company’s O2 Recycle campaign, which gives money to those who recycle their gadgets and aims to highlight what can happen when you recycle your old handset instead of send it to the landfill.
Remember earlier when I said the “Anti Loneliness Ramen Bowl” was the worst invention ever? Well, it was literally topped in the same day by the shoe phone. These shoes and boots have a phone built into them. Why? I have no fucking clue. Just look at this girl holding her fucking boot to her head:
It’s so ridiculous I’m mesmerized by it. I can’t think of something that is less practical than this. Do you have to actually take off your fucking shoe to use your phone or is it just shaped like shoes and you don’t actually wear it? If you actually wear these than put them to your face you are a lunatic. The amount of human piss and shit I probably step on on the train is probably more than I’d like to know. Now imagine rubbing that same shoe on your face? No fucking thank you.
Also, this Sean Miles clown knows this came directly from Get Smart though, right? Literally the exact same idea:
I guess if that’s the way we’re going to play now then I’m just going to roll out a fucking shrink ray from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Did I think of it? Nope. Would I make a killing on it? You betchur ass I would.
