Quote:The Vienna-based designer created a series of five Substitute Phones, which use stone beads to imitate the different motions used for smart devices, such as scrolling, zooming, and swiping.

By replacing digital functions with the stone beads, Schillinger aims to create a set of therapeutic tools that can help frequent smartphone users cope with withdrawal symptoms, by providing physical stimulation as a substitute for phone usage.

Specifically for crazies I guess, it's concerning to me that there's a market for this.

The zombie apocalypse is here.

I'm the last citizen in town (except babies and toddlers, of course)
not constantly looking down into my palm.

Valko-Jeesus could return or the Alien Mothership fill the sky -
nobody would notice.

I'm interested to see what the price tag is.

I use mine for everything, including internet, but I can leave it at home and not go through withdrawals. That's more OCD than I'm willing to go.
