Have you ever told yourself “I need a break,” hit the nearest park and found yourself scrolling through your Instagram or inbox after 5 minutes? Have you ever felt the uneasiness of leaving your phone at home and felt like you were stranded on a deserted island for the whole day? Of course, you have! Everyone has.
Nowadays we’re so used to that emotionless scrolling. We’ve become THE master’s of “multitasking.” But not really, multitasking has been proved to be a myth. We need to get “unplugged” from time to time and concentrate on a certain task, in our loved ones or in ourselves. But how can we do that and not constantly think: “how am I going call mom if an 800lb rock falls and traps my arm?” Well… that’s exactly the purpose of the Light Phone.
Joe Hollier and Kaiwe Tang had the idea of creating “a phone away from your phone.” An app redirects just the important calls from your actual phone to your Light Phone, so you can take that much-needed break from social media. The Light Phone is designed to look like a blank id or credit card. Its minimal design is bringing back the phone to its basic function. It encourages consciousness of a healthy use of smart phones and offers a chance to take some real time off. And it also looks amazing.
So are you ready to go light and take a plunge into freedom? If so, check the Light Phone.
