This is one of those products that would probably appeal to the same crowd who waxes nostalgic for old brick cell phones . The handset attached to this Buffalo keyboard looks to be around the same vintage, albeit an updated version that uses Skype.

It's beyond us why people would insist on a corded handset like this, when there are so many other alternatives available out there--including phone-mouse combos . It also appears Lilliputian in size, as Dvice points out. Then again, it's destined for Japan , where there aren't too many Shaq wannabes wandering around.
