Don’t have the money to shell out $800+ USD (£539) for the new iPhone 6 later this year? Don’t want to sign a 2-year contract with a carrier that will cost you more than the phone to get out of early? Not smart enough to use a Smart Phone? Worried that your phone is going to get hacked, lost/stolen, damaged or the NSA is listening in on your conversations? Then the iCups are for you!
The iCups are “pure communication.” They are two silver cups connected by a jaunty light-green string. This isn’t your childhood version of cups-on-a-string — actually, I lie. It is pretty much your childhood version of cups-on-a-string. But it’s so much more than that. The cups are crafted from high-quality paper. The arts-and-crafts string offers “superior sound quality,” a considerable upgrade over your mom’s garden twine. Run-time and stand-by time are eternal and you can handle most repairs yourself.
You can find out more about the iCups at their Kickstarter Page
