Does your addiction to your smartphone mean you are missing out on some of life’s most precious moments? Well, Swiss designers Punkt have come up the design that could be called the anti-smartphone.
The device, unveiled at the London Design Festival and designed by Jasper Morrison, allows users to do the most simplest of functions – calls, texts, alarm clock and address book. No social media, no notifications, no hassle.
Of course Punkt founder Petter Neby doesn’t say his device should replace your smartphone but suggests it could be used in the evenings, weekends and during holidays to get back to a more simple life.
“The more our phones do, the more they demand of us. Say it with words. Focus on what matters most and leave the rest. The MP01 is a simple mobile phone for smart communicators,” the Punkt website says.
“At long last a beautiful mobile phone that limits distraction and doesn’t demand your constant attention. The Punkt. MP01 is an uncomplicated, streamlined device that performs the core mobile phone functions: calling and texting. With no status updates, notifications or multiple alerts, the MP01 focuses on the things that matter. Like communicating.”
