NoPhone: A $12 'phone' that does absolutely nothing shuns smartphone addiction

Are you addicted to your smartphone and cannot find time for social outings? Try this NoPhone to shun the virtual world and stay closer to reality.

 

The NoPhone is a black piece of plastic in the shape of an iPhone that does absolutely nothing. It acts as a phone surrogate for those addicted to their smartphones, media reports said. How does it work? Just "Pick it up. Hold it" , says the manufacturer.

 

“Phone addiction is real. And it is everywhere. It is ruining your dates. It is distracting you at concerts. It is disrupting you in movie theaters. It is clogging up sidewalks. Now, there is a real solution,” its developers wrote on its page on Kickstarter – the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects.

 

It is a technology-free alternative to constant hand-to-phone contact that allows you to stay connected with the real world, reads the description.

 

With a thin, light and completely wireless design, NoPhone enables the user to carry a smooth, cold plastic without forgoing any potential engagement with his/her direct environment.

 

The NoPhone is priced at $12 and ships for free in the United States.
