Cell phone time traveler caught on film in 1928.

Caught this early at Yahoo news. The inventor of the cell phone was born in 1928. Coincidence? You decide.

edit:

Found the originator of this one.

Which carrier was he using? And which cell towers were closest to that movie set. Then you'll find who he was by triangulation. It was an iPod.

Re: Cell phone time traveler caught on film in 192

@smetz - iPods don't use cell towers. And they can take movies without any wi-fi. If this guy's experience pre-dated the current iPod release it wasn't an iPod anyway. However, there were many cell phones that could take movies and do so without using either cell towers or wi-fi. Now whether you believe the experience or not is another question . . .

LOL! Does make you wonder what the person was doing - ear trumpet or "cool tech from the future" -- don't think someone would just walk down a crowded street like that if they were from the future, though. (I've always loved the concept of time travel.)

As for the Swedish time traveller - there seems to be a link to AMF Pension funds - Metacafe video

Re: Cell phone time traveler caught on film in 192

lol; just saw the video of the Swedish guy a few hours ago; was going to share it here too. Also found the guy who supposed turned $800 to $350 Million in 2 weeks and was caught by the government FEDs for insider trading and he confessed that he came from 200 years in the future and couldn't resist makeing a lot of dough. He did say he would give us the cure for AIDS if they released him. Lots of cool things when you try to look for them.

Re: Cell phone time traveler caught on film in 192

you may have seen my "rational " explication elsewhere

To summarize that was US 1920 and was winter,,a cold wither judging from the cloths and faces
American like a lot experiment with weird gadget (see publicity of old pulps) so that was a new revolutionary gadget to warm the ear

weird but maybe less of a time taveller perfectly mimetized but for the use of a cellular phone or even a walkie talkie in a crowded street

Re: Cell phone time traveler caught on film in 192

An ear warmer maybe PC, but it doesn't explain why he/she is talking into it. Per your post at our other favorite forum, I agree with you that it can't be a walkie talkie since they only had tubes then and it would be way too small for it's day.

Re: Cell phone time traveler caught on film in 192

Who knows what kind of signal we will use in the future? Maybe no towers only our devices?

Why to suppose this person is from our time?
