Behold, the “world’s first disposable cell phone,” which was invented by Randice-Lisa Altschul after she became so fed up with her real cell phone that she almost chucked it out her car window. Although this never took off, the “Phone-Card-Phone” had some kind of cool features:
1) It was hands-free.
2) It was made from recycled paper products.
3) Its thickness was that of about three credit cards.
4) The body/touchpad was made from paper substrate.
The drawbacks (if you count them as that):
1) You only had 60 minutes of call time.
2) You could only make outgoing calls.
3) That gold watch was not included.
