The Mobile Phone 1974

Back in 1974 I did a school project on "Communications by Radio, Electricity etc" (my mind groping its way towards IT and telecommunications) and included this drawing of "Telephones of the distant future" which, apart from the separate earpiece, is remarkably like a mobile phone. Note the ruler included for scale.

 

Does that mean we're now living in the distant future?
