Light phone to cure Smartphone addiction
Kick starter has funded yet another beautiful gadget. We see many people addicted to their mobile phones most of the times causing a lot of inconvenience to them and also people around them. With the introduction of social media apps like Facebook, whatsapp, twitter, Instagram, the addictions have just become easier to indulge in. Joe Jollier and Kaiwei Tang's are the genius minds behind such a marvellous creation. The goal of the creators when they designed this phone was to make people ditch their smart phone. It was designed keeping in mind that the phone should be used as little as possible.
This phone is very simple and is has just limited option. This phone is so simple that even sending a text message is impossible through this phone. It is limited to just making phone calls and has a dot matrix LED display that lights up. The light phone is used instead of a smart phone. There is a companion app that’s installed on your smart phone that forwards all the call to this light phone. The idea is to leave the main phone at home. It was designed me be very light and weighs just 39g and it fits easily inside the pocket. It has a 3D printed shell which is not much bigger than the size of a credit card. This phone is just 4mm thick. The phone is charged using a USB and one full charge can make the phone last up to 20 days.
Although this phone is not available in the market, it can be picked up from the kickstarter campaign for $100.
