What is the 80’s Brick Phone?
It is a totally rad Bluetooth headset that connects to any Bluetooth capable device and makes it appear that you are talking on an old school 80’s “Brick” phone just like Gordon Gekko or Zach Morris. Guaranteed to make your friends crack up, and then wish they were anywhere near as cool as you are.
How does it work?
You just pair the 80’s Brick Phone with your Bluetooth capable cell phone and when you get a call on your phone, you answer it on your Brick Phone. You don’t even have to take your “modern day” cell phone out of your pocket. When you’re done with the call, you just hang up. That’s it. The 80’s Brick Phone charges via a mini usb cable that you can simply plug in to your computer.

Will it work with my phone?
The 80’s Brick Phone will work with any Bluetooth capable phone including the iPhone, Android, Windows and other phones. If your phone has Bluetooth capability, you can use the 80’s Brick Phone.
Where will the money be spent?
The majority of the funds raised will go towards the fabrication of the molds for the phone parts. Injection Molds cost anywhere from $15,000 to upwards of $100k and I need your help to get mine made. This particular design consists of 4 pieces so we'll need 4 molds, each costing about $8,000. Other things that the IndieGoGo campaign will cover are things like electronics engineering fees, mechanical engineering fees, packaging design, fulfillment costs, etc. I have assembled a top notch team to help with all aspects of the project and I'm confident that you will see that in the final product.
Why a Brick Phone?
Because it’s TOTALLY AWESOME!
