Posted on January 23, 2013 by team

Probably everyone uses cellphones today: even kids and old people. But how can you make your cellphone special? Not just a stylish gadget bought at a higher price but a really unique thing? This is how an ordinary Chinese cellphone turns into a steampunk masterpiece from the nineteenth century.

This is what we had.

And this is what we have now. But how was it done? See the pictures of the process:

    Good work, but I wonder if it’s worth the effort, do most people keep their phones that long?

    • Murphy says:

      I keep the phone as long as it works. I do not need some fancy stuff in it, as I use it just to make call.

      As someone who had just unlocked a Nokia 3210 (cca. 1999), I can tell you that some people do. Not sure this phone will last 10+ years though. But the casing will.

    2 words: Faraday cage ;)

    Kinda nice sure, but that steampunk-theme is going out of fashion, and fast. And what does the backplate say?

    I have an idea, if you want a really unique phone: make the covers out of used sardine-/tuna cans – non-polished, with original labels. Or, being russian, one can always use a used pickle can. :)

    The original phone looks like copy of the Nokia C1-01. Though I would imagine all phones look almost the same if they are designed to have common buttons 0-9, #, *, and the control buttons and navigation.
    Is the Fly TS90 a good quality phone? I’d hate to have made the fancy cover just to find out the phone core is inferior quality.
