It can’t make calls. It can’t send e-mail. It’s the NoPhone.
There’s a low tech way for smartphone addicts who suffer from nomophobia — the fear of being without their mobile devices — to cope with being away from their beloved electronics.
From the Kickstarter page: “The NoPhone acts as a surrogate to any smart mobile device, enabling you to always have a rectangle of smooth, cold plastic to clutch without forgoing any potential engagement with your direct environment.”
The noPhone is built specifically to alleviate the anxiety that comes along with not having a phone, and/or work as a substitute for a phone during those moments when you should really be more attentive to what’s happening in your real life.
The noPhone can come with you on a first date so that you can still maintain eye contact and pay attention without having a panic attack. You can also take the noPhone with you when you go camping or hiking, where your phone won’t work properly anyways, to feel that smooth, cool, block of happiness in your pocket.
Or, if you’re like me, you can let the noPhone sit in your lap as your real phone charges on the other side of the room.
Unlike most phones, the noPhone is toilet-bowl resistant, shatter proof, sand proof, and requires no battery or software upgrades.
