The perfect phone for Ferris Bueller

It has built-in voice-changing technology.

Chinavasion

This is one phone that we think should be banned from the U.S. market--or, at least, from any households with teenagers. But that would seem to be the marketing target for this Chinese-made item, given the teddy bear (or whatever it is) on the receiver.

On the surface it's as basic as a phone can possibly be these days, almost a throwback that even has a cord. Except for one key feature: It has a built-in voice-changing technology. SlashGear says it can even make one sound like the opposite sex, which would undoubtedly come in handy for schoolkids playing hooky when the truant officer calls. Worst of all, it comes from that prolific wholesaler Chinavasion--which means these phones can be purchased in bulk, for less than $10 each.
