1980s Apple Macintosh Phone Concept

Concepts of Apple’s latest iteration of the beloved iPhone have begun making their way around the web this past week, so designer Pierre Cerveau decided to do something a bit different with the 1980s Apple Macintosh Phone Concept.

The design project imagines what an Apple phone would’ve looked like had it been created in 1984 – 20 years before the first iPhone. The end result is actually quite impressive, fusing Apple’s old school design elements like the rainbow colored Apple logo with technology from yesteryear including a rotary dial, serial cable charging port and 512 kb of memory. Of course this is just a design concept, so don’t expect to see the Bangkok-based artist’s Macintosh Phone on shelves anytime soon.
