Someone went through an awful lot of work to create something that won's sell for anywhere near what they are asking, if it does at all. And it would have to be difficult to use in that the handle of the iron would make it ergonometrically difficult to hold to ones ear and the buttons are not recessed so when talking one would be sending DTMF tones to the person on the other end by flat surface cheek dialing. Not even steampunk.

Quick!  Which one is the call coming in on!  The real iron or the "fixed" one?  A mistake would leave quite an impression on the user.
