A Dick Tracy Cell Phone

Posted by Michael Pinto on May 21, 2008 in Hobbies and Collections |


Shown above is the Special Edition Cellphone Watch (available from chinavasion.com) which reminded me a great deal of the Dick Tracy 2-Way Wrist Radio which was introduced into the comic strip in 1946. Thankfully Hollywood did an action film based on the strip in 1990 which means we won’t have to worry about a remake for at least another few years.

As to the watch itself Dick Tracy would be pretty happy as it features both a still and video camera. While this watch feels like a bit of a gimmick keep in mind that if a second generation model started to combine voice recognition technology that this could evolve into a very handy device. I guess I also like the idea that the good old fashioned form factor of a watch won’t be replaced by other devices that tell you the time.
