A Kraftwerk-esque video about evolution and mobile phones

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

A few years ago, artist Kyle Bean decided to tell the story of how mobile phones came to be the way they are today. The resulting vid reminds me of Kraftwerk, if only the weird German synthpop band had been obsessed with nesting dolls. Watch and be mesmerized.

The best part is that these are actual mobile devices - see if you can recognize them all!
