Back in 1985, the Dutch TV programme Wondere Wereld featured what they called the ‘phone of the future.’ The show’s presenter Chriet Titulaer showed the prototype of the mobile phone which was small enough to be transported by bicycle.
Titulaer predicted that users of the “PTT bicycle phone” which would be charged using an alternator, would even be making calls whilst cycling.
He explained that the phone was being tested in The Hague before it would appear on the market. However, the phone never did become available to consumers. It turned out to be an April Fool’s joke.
