  • Patent number: 5357566
    Abstract: An object-oriented programmable dedicated dialer device includes a hollow disc-shaped body having a front cover and a rear base facing and attached with one another and defining an interior cavity, a telephone number dialing mechanism disposed in the interior cavity and mounted on the rear base, and a touch sensor mounted to the hollow body and connected to the telephone number dialing mechanism. The telephone number dialing mechanism includes a microcontroller, a battery, and a sound-generating transducer. The microcontroller stores a telephone number in its memory. The touch sensor is operable in response to a user touching the touch sensor to convert the microcontroller from a deactivated to activated to cause the dialing mechanism to dial the stored telephone number. Thus, when the touch sensor is touched activating the microcontroller, the dialing mechanism begins operation to generate the plurality of DTMF tones necessary to dial the stored telephone number.
