fernsprechen die FernSprecher

I am loving the DIY gadget aesthetics of these FernSprecher voice-memo machines made from old telephone handsets by Karl Schatzmann of Brooklyn. FernSprecher, one of the German words for telephone, literally means “remote speaker.” One button records a message, the other plays it back. [Thanks, Karl!]
