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.
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 also available in a selfie variant. "Enjoy sending yourself selfies in real-time. Share selfies with your friends if they’re standing behind you. Add a verbal hashtag by syncing your brain and vocal cords," the description on the products Kickstarter page says.
"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," the creators of NoPhone say.
