Do you crave that perfect ironic phone accessory? Looking to trump all of your friends with their oh-so-2005 Bluetooth headsets? Then check out this cool mobile phone accessory that looks like... an old 1940s-era phone handset?That's right. Now you can stroll down your block talking on your cell phone but with a handset that is a replica of Western Electric 500, the classic telephone handset.

The Retro Phone Handset works with 2.5mm jacks on most cell phones, including models from Motorola, Samsung, and LG. It has a built-in button for answering and disconnecting calls and requires no batteries.

Now, just grab a trench coat and a fedora, and you can look like Humphrey Bogart as you gab away on your mobile phone. Or maybe not.
