Classic, anyone who seen a 1930's 'portable radio' will know how stupid this sounds. Even military grade radio's were massive and required hefty batteries. :)

It wouldn't surprise me if mobile phone technology had been available since then, tested, revoked and re-released many years later in the form we remember as the brick for no other reason than to make money

Companies don't release their cutting edge technology to us, they release crap and then tiny upgrades over a long period of time to milk as much money from us as possible.

If you look back to every single gadget / device every made, out of the millions/billions invented, by the law of averages, at least a few would have to have been originally made in such a way that they would still be amazing by todays standards, but they weren't (so we're led to believe) they were all huge clunky clumbsy things with horrendous noise/heat/battery life/speed/ability that over the years got smaller/quieter/faster

I know as technology improves, so does the ability to make better things, but not everything in the entire world had to start life as a building sized monstrosity !

'Allo 'Allo This is Nighthawk can you hear me ?

those things they're holding are types of hearing aids that were out at the time.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_hearing_aids the one in the OPs video was most likely the type in the top left of the second image.

It did back in the day because surface mount components and integrated circuits were not invented till around 1960. Now a days you can make your projects/prototypes small from the start because a lot of circuity is already packaged in to integrated circuits.

Look at a 555 timer, around 30 components go in to making it, before IC's it would have taken a lot more space to make.

Even if she was "holding a cell phone to her ears" she was probably hard pressed to find a cell tower :D

^ So it was just a walkie-talkie.

Maybe these are so advanced they communicate directly with another phone. :p

So no picture of this so called 1930s Dupont phone?

Hmmm interesting.

 

Well techincally speaking everyone at this very second is travelling into the future.

 

For example, after an hour has passed, you've just travelled one hour into the future.   I don't know why people don't class this as time travel, just because its a slow rate of time travel doesn't mean it isn't time travel.

It wouldn't surprise me...

Thank you! Took the words right out of my mouth.

What makes me laugh is that these conspiracy theorists don't believe that a mobile that size could exist back in the 1930's, but they're completely content to put the whole thing down to time travel. :blink:

Haha yeah this totally baffles me too.

At what point do people think that Time Travel would be easier than a smaller device? If that was the case surely we'd all be time travelling by now rather than using mobiles.

It's a wireless phone, not a cell phone. Big difference both in time to market and size.

How did she get reception?

 

Also, people probably don't know, the "Daily Mail" news paper quite often posts lies and are a known racists paper.

Clearly an aid of some kind .... time traveller is ludicrous ... no cell phone towers = no one else to talk to.  Some people are thick in the head if they truly believe this stuff.  It's cool to find videos like this, but the facts are there ... just because we don't know what the reason that woman is holding a device to her ear in the video, doesn't mean it's some outlandish science fiction crap.  The fact is, the first woman has an experimental phone device as she clearly stated.  And the second video is clearly a hearing aid or something ... either way, none of this stuff is related IN THE SLIGHTEST to time travel.  And anyone who truly believes it is, needs to grow up and start living in the world that exists outside of their mind.

Plus if the woman was from the future then she wouldn't have been able to use the phone unless she wants to alter history in someway.

I do think it could have exisited, but it is likley a prototype that was simply ahead of its time so it was shelved.  Plus take into account that the world was still in the great depression at the time, no one would have been able to afford one.

Uh, no. That is just the natural progression of time. You don't say you've physically traveled anywhere while you're sitting still, do you? Of course not. But technically, the earth is both moving on its axis AND in its orbit, so you're actually going pretty far. Time travel denotes passing through time in a way that is different than normal. If you wanted to make the argument that astronauts are time travelers (because less time (milliseconds less) passes for them while they are in orbit) then I could see that argument.
