Tracking 25 years of the cellular phone
Evolution comes in many forms, and for those who remember the Zack Morris cell phone bricks from back in the day, Japan is a good place to compare your present accessory to the display going on for Tokyo Designers’ Week.

If you want to see how we went from crawling to walking to opposable thumbs, you can visit the Museum of Natural History, because there, each step seems to have been a purposeful elevation (albeit over thousands of years). But for cell phones assembled in the same timeline, I’m surprised how many models on display are certainly still useful and functional. They are just phones after all. As a thinking man, it may be a small jab against my consumerism spirit, but screw it, I don’t want to be a mood killer on a company’s 20th birthday.
