Anti-Phone Tech for Your Phone!


You might be a “phubber” if you snub the real world in favor of your smartphone! While we’ve all been guilty of it at one time or another, it’s a serious issue for some. Designed with these individuals in mind, the BLACK HOLE feature is designed to bring people’s attention back IRL.

It works by having the user drag their most distracting apps into the black hole on the screen. Then, they can designate a reasonable amount of time to use the apps. If they cross that line, the apps that have been selected for the black hole will be blurred out and unresponsive for a period of time, forcing the user to get back in the real world with their family and friends.
