UK company presents the pop-out post-a-phone

Flat as a pancake landline

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

A UK design company has gone eco-friendly with its recyclable landline handset, which is so flat it can be posted through your letterbox. The Post A Phone is just 0.4cm thick and made from recyclable cardboard and plastic.

The Post A Phone

It ships in an A5 envelope and pops out from a greeting card style packet, at which point users need only connect it up to their telephone socket before it's ready for use.

The flatpack phone is designed by UK firm Priestman Goode, and also features pre-programmable buttons for, say, your favourite telephone numbers, like the local takeaway.

Sadly, it's still a concept design, and the Post A Phone isn't yet available for sale.

Priestman Goode was also the brains behind the design of BT's Home Hub, a wireless router with detachable handset.
