Oh. it's been done already, I think. Basically something like the handset I made years ago for one of my Steampunk computers, The Mare-Leviathan. The computer was a "workstation" with keyboard and looked like an old time phone with "bells" that wre the on and restart switches. I made the handle to use the mic and headphone jacks. The idea was to use Skype. Later I removed the keyboard and sold the box with the handset to a Firehouse somewhere in the Mid-West, where I assume the computer is still working.

Anyhow, I'd make one with Bluetooth now. Thanks for reminding me! Sounds like an easy project fopr Xmas. Cheesy

for a while, ThinkGeek had an old-timey handset (better than the pictured on).  Don't know if they still have it.

 It a fabulous idea. Imagine whipping one of those out  when stopped in traffic  or mid supermarket. Your audience would be in awe
