I love my iPhone, in fact I'm known for always having it with.. but I swear lately those red notification eyes are just a bit much. Trends always undulate, push back.. here is one that might be obvious (it's the phone we all had 20 years ago), but still this one is pretty.. I might just get one for those days
The Light Phone is the opposite of every other phone in existence. It is thin, light, lasts 20 days on a charge, and literally does nothing but make and answer calls.
The creators, Joe Hollier and Kaiwei Tang, created the phone at Google’s 30 Weeks incubator in NYC. They both came from a design background by Kaiwei has a background in building phones.
“We started building this because it became very clear that true happiness means being present."
This has been written about by so many of the smartest minds since Seneca. So much of our days are spent connected and staring at screens that we are losing that presence in so many situations. We built the Light Phone as a way for people to find balance with their connectedness. It’s not that we think people should never connect again, it’s just that taking a break is extremely healthy in every sense of the word,” said Hollier.
