Browse the web from your rotary phone

The “Phone Dial Web Browser” by artist / designer David Lu is a custom web browser that uses a vintage phone dial as a physical interface. Dial the IP address of the website that you want to reach and the browser will get you there. The project was built back in 2003 with a BX-24 microcontroller, basic electronics, and a Java interface to access the Internet.
