My Dream Phone: Translater, Coffee Maker, Harmonica Player, Shaver…

It really does exist! Experience it for yourself, or watch the informational video below:

Now, after watching this video, you’re probably thinking: HOLY CRAP. I really want to shave AND make my calls simultaneously! And instantly know how to say “You betcha!” in Farsi. And make a cup of coffee with a phone roughly the size of a large swiss army knife?

Don’t be silly. Don’t be like the hundreds of gullible people who commented on this YouTube video. That’s why I’m here to clear things up for you.

The whole thing is genius. It’s actually a PR stunt for Nova Scotia.  They are playing on our love for convenience and futuristic, techy objects. And antioxidants. It’s both an advertisement and a comment on today’s society. I know this because when you click Release Date at the top of the page, it re-directs you to a page all about tourism in Nova Scotia – the PLACE that has everything! They also admit that this phone does not exist. If you think about it, this is an innovative, creative way to get people to learn about what Nova Scotia has to offer. It doesn’t particularly make me want to travel to Nova Scotia, but I appreciate their ingenuity. What do you think?
