VoIP phone made of wood!

Now you can Skype in style! This is the world’s first VoIP phone made of wood! Two years ago HULGER launched the ZIRICOTE concept design made from an African wood to huge acclaim and this month they debuted the finished PAPPA phone, with a design more suited to production. It is handcrafted from a sustainable American walnut, in Montreal Canada, by a company called Furni. Below is the ZIRICOTE and hit “more” to see several shots of the PAPPA.

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
