Introduction: Cyberpunk Cellphone Watch

!!!!!UPDATE: new faceplate and coverings, much more stylin'!!!!!!!!!

I modified a Tracfone Motorola W175 into a wrist wearable cell phone! Phone is still fully functional and now has a refreshing cyberpunk look. If this slideshow gets enough attention I will post up an Instructable since the phone only cost $9.99.
Enjoy,
Sincerely Myspark400

ps feel free to pm me with any questions!

you know, if you took out more plastic, and found a thinner/smaller battery, you could probably make it even smaller!

I've got an old LG phone that isn't connected anymore (used to be my mom's) and she doesn't care what I do with it, so I'm gonna try something like this.

Cool idea. Admittedly, I started writing a response explaining why this is not a steampunk item, too used to people trying to call stuff steampunk when it isn't. Cyberpunk is spot on, nice job.

Cool! Cyberpunk definitely dude. I like your design, however, if I am looking at the pictures correctly, there seems to be no way to press the buttons? Because by the looks of it, you seem to have pulled off the rubber-button skin? or am I misinterpreting the pictures? lol Great slideshow. Waiting for the 'ible though... pretty please??? :) Peace

Actually the pictures are deceptive. The cover i removed was just for looking pretty and the body of the phone has actual buttons built in. So in short they do work and the only difference without the cover (basically a sticker) is that the leds are really bright. 'Ible to come eventually btw when i have more time. cheers, Mspark400

So are you using a bluetooth headset or do you just put it on speaker and yell at your wrist?

author
mspark400 made it! (author)mspark4002008-10-22

unfortunately such a cheap phone has no Bluetooth. I can use a wired headset or the spekerphone(which is not bad). Cheers, Mspark400

You need to find a better way to attach the phone to the wristband than tape. It just won't hold up.

mspark400 made it! (author)mspark4002008-10-21

although it is hard to see in the pics, the wristband is actually attached with wire as well as a two sided adhesive, the scotch tape was just to prevent sticking to me. I got another one of these phones today and am working on V2 which will include brass housings and many improved features. cheers, mspark400

Nice work, i think it looks really, good, definitely cyberpunk. I cant help but think that it could be made a little bit 'shallower'. Also, it might be worth adding a little extra metal work around the sides, just to give it all a bit more 'containment'. I have an old cellphone here, i am tempted to do something to it!
