Introducing the noPhone, a Technology-Free Alternative to Constant Hand-to-Phone Contact

Share Article

With the noPhone, users can interact less with their phones and more with the world around them without losing the familiar and comforting sensation of clutching their mobile devices.

The noPhone is a surrogate tool designed to fulfill all smartphone-holding needs without preventing the user to engage in real life interactions.

Aside from numerous innovative contributions to the field of mobile communication, smartphones have inadvertently programed a compulsory need in humans to continuously engage in physical contact with a piece of plastic. On average, a single device will use its technological wizardry to summon a user 150 times a day.

This constant, near uncontrollable impulse for contact with mobile devices has noticeably diminished human-to-human interactions.

The noPhone was created to combat the rapid decline of real life social engagement that has stemmed from chronic smartphone use. It’s sleek, plastic design serves as an idle hand’s security blanket and is devised to alleviate the constant need humans have to hold a mobile device without preventing users from fully experiencing their immediate surroundings.

The noPhone was created using 3D printing technology.

The noPhone is a project by Ingmar Larsen, Ben Langeveld, Mariana Oliveira, Alanna Watson and Van Gould.
