The Banana Phone is real and we definitely see the appeal
No your eyes aren’t deceiving you, that really is a banana phone on sale.
A campaign on Indiegogo is planning on making banana-shaped phones a reality, because mankind has clearly run out of ideas.
The Bluetooth-enabled phone works by connecting to your smartphone and letting you take calls from your Banana Phone, so don’t throw your iPhone away just yet.
The Banana Phone, which is available for just $40, has a 10 hour talk time, as well as a few handy buttons to pick up and put down your call.
The phone’s able to trigger Siri or other voice assistants, so you can dial out that way, too.
If you remain unconvinced, maybe these guys will change your mind:
According to the co-founders behind the Banana Phone, the purpose of the phone is to “put smiles on faces and start great conversation.”
1 percent of the phone’s sales profits also go to Gearing Up for Gorillas, a non-profit organisation working towards the conservation of gorillas.
For now, the Indiegogo campaign has reached over $9,000 and is still some way off its target of $30,000.
There’s only a month left so if you want your own Banana Phone, you better act fast.
And yeah, this is stuck in our heads, too.
