Disposable Cell Phones at Your Disposal
If you haven't watched Ultraviolet yet, the techie film which has displayed oh-so-many nerdy gadgets, you have missed how cool disposable cell phones are, that is if you're not using one yet.
Connectivity options have become so varied you don't know what to use anymore. Aside from laptops, one of the most favored mode of communication now is through cell phones. Hey, with the various innovations of these little gizmos, who won't get addicted? Aside from mobile communication, you know what's also getting so "in" today? Anything disposable!
So with those two trends rolled into one comes a "disposable cell phone!"
According to reports, a man named Randi Altschul, a New Jersey toy inventor, created a disposable cell phone.
Want to know more about its major components according to Altschul's model?
Parts of Altschul's Disposable Cell Phone
From the original plan of using a synthetic polymer component,practicality has paved the way for paper as the cell phone's substrate. Recycled paper can be of greater help if you want to be environment-friendly, too, don't you think?
The paper substrate gets printed with metallic inks as circuits and other parts such as conductors. The difference between an ordinary cell phone's circuits and a disposable cell phone is that a disposable one has its circuits printed over a larger surface.
The keyboard numbers and other graphics components are printed on the substrate. Because of the paper substrate, the disposable cell phone can be made more customized to its owner's preferences by printing whatever graphics the owner wants it to have.
In a separate part, the unprintable parts of the disposable cell phone such as capacitors and crystals are contained. The keypad are placed to the substrate mounted.
The battery is added after the initial production methods. It is included via slipping a battery case at the cell phone's end part of its body.
However, Altschul's disposable cellphone is not the first one to market it as Hop-On Wireless of California created its own version of a disposable phone. It is said to be the size of a deck of playing cards AND even has a cool voice recognition dialing feature to boot. With a handsfree earbud and mic accessory, it sure is one hit of a phone which makes you think twice before discarding it, right? A Hop-On disposable cell phone comes with a cheap tag price of .
Nice, right? Until reports have revealed that Hop-On admitted that it only was repackaging Nokia cell phones. So, nailed they got!
Since rumors say that disposable cell phones are becoming an accomplice to crime and terrorism (150 disposable tracphone from Target) and some scams (Hop-On Wireless) were also blurted about them, but still lots of benefits come from their existence such as:
- No more crying when your phone gets snatched from you.
- No more complaining about how this and that brand lasts longer
- You can always use your phone as your outlet for anger or just about any frustrations
Seriously, those benefits are the grandest that a disposable can provide. A low-cost, no strings attached device that you can always get rid of anytime you want.
But still, it should not be the gadget that should be blamed if any mishaps or any ploy from no-souled individuals becomes successful, right? Although many believes that these disposable cell phones are giving more opportunity for any acts of insanity to be easier realized, what about the use of payphones and other devices that can also become media for terrorism and other criminal intent? This issue is still open for debate until now as many fruits of technology still are.
But for those other people who see goodness in using disposable cell phones, you might want to create your own if you're geeky enough, eh?
And hey, please find a way to make those disposable cell phones less helpful with persons with ill intent. Ideas, anyone?
