noPhone is the Non-Phone That Pushes You to Interact In the Real World

 |  |  |  September 4, 2014


If you find yourself spending more time on your phone rather than talking with whomever you’re currently having dinner or drinks with, then it’s time to stop and take a step back for a moment. Or better yet, swap your device with the noPhone whenever you’ve got company or when you’ve got plans to head out with a bunch of people.

NoPhone

NoPhone is what its name says it is. Even though it’s shaped like a typical smartphone, it has no features whatsoever and won’t let you surf the web, takes pictures, send text, or make calls. One upside? It’s “toilet resistent,” apparently.

Think of the noPhone as a surrogate to your current phone. On its website, the creators explain that the noPhone lets users “always have a rectangle of smooth, cold plastic to clutch without forgoing any potential engagement with your direct environment.”

Of course, you can just hold your wallet or a similarly-shaped paper weight (which is essentially what the noPhone is.) As of now, it’s not for sale, but who knows? You might just see non-gadgets like this gain traction in the far future.
