Randice Lisa Altschul
Randice Lisa Altschul is a toy and game designer. She arrived at the idea of inventing a disposable phone while driving through a roaming zone and losing connection while she was on her cell phone. Frustrated, she was about to throw out her cell phone before realizing she was about to dispose of a very expensive piece of electronic equipment. She then came upon the idea of inventing a phone that would be so inexpensive that it could be thrown away.
Her disposable phone--the size of a credit card when folded and unused--incorporates what she and engineer term Lee Volte super thin technology (STTTM).
