A Credit Card-Sized Phone That Can Only Make Calls, Minimizes Distraction
By Aqila Xiao Qi, 15 May 2015
Addressing the widespread issue of modern society’s over-attachment to their mobile phones, a designer and mobile phone industry veteran duo has emerged with a clean, minimalist, credit card-sized phone meant just for calls and telling the time.
The project, called ‘The Light Phone’, is built on the observation of our habitual impulses leading us to check our phones frequently, even when it is on “silent mode”.
To counter this, the phone is strictly devoid of any visual and web capabilities, but can be linked to your existing mobile phone to enable call forwarding. It is pre-loaded with 500-minutes of call time independent of your carrier, a time display and a 20-day battery life.
Check out the images of the prototype below, and find out more about the phone at their Kickstarter campaign page.
