The Bluetooth Ericofon (Cobra phone) got tons of publicity
« on: January 06, 2010, 12:20:41 AM »
The Bluetooth Ericofon I made got tons of publicity in MAKE magazine, Hack-A-Day and Engadget websites just to mention a few sites (check the links below)

I posted a video about how the phone works and in less than 3 days it has been watched by over 5,000 people. Best of all, I took it to a Swedish friend's elegant party after New Year and people loved it! It was really fun seeing people in a total disbelieve using the rotary dial to call their cell phones and then calling it back to listen it ringing. It was really funny. The phone accomplished its mission!  ;D Thanks to all.

Congrats!  Glad that is's been such a hit!!
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.
