Phone Relief: The Ultimate Hands-Free Headset (1993)

We have fea­tured some great acts of imag­i­na­tion when it comes to tele­phone technology–from the worlds’ first mobile phone shown in this 1922 British Pathé news­reel, to when Fritz Lang “invent­ed” the video phone in Metrop­o­lis in 1927. “Phone Relief,” the ulti­mate hands-free head­set mar­ket­ed in 1993, will nev­er qual­i­fy as a great act of imag­i­na­tion. But it does make for a great kitschy ad.
