A german scam artist [I refuse to use the word inventor] has released
a mobile phone for the dead.
No, I’m serious, stop laughing. Ok don’t, but I’m still serious.
The phone, which goes by the name Telefon-Engel [which translated into English means Phone Angel], comes in a black box with a loudspeaker that is placed on top of the grave. It runs on a battery that lasts for at least twelve months, and the inventor claims that the sound quality is excellent. I’m not sure who exactly this is going to benefit, unless there have been some recent innovations in the field of decomposition audio that I’m not aware of.
If all of this isn’t enough, wait until you hear how much it’s going to cost you, ok, hopefully not you to get your hands on one of your very own.
It will set you back €1495, which is a cool $2407.47 Canadian but thankfully, well sort of, you can return the unit within 18 months if for some reason you aren’t happy with it and get a €50 [$80.52 Canadian] refund. Isn’t that nice?
