Feeling on the edge when you don’t have your smartphone in your hand? The Substitute Phone by Viennese Furniture and product designer Klemens Schillinger is, to put it simply, a phone placebo. And a really cool-looking one at that.
With the similar shape and weight of a phone, the Substitute features stone beads that replicate the motion of your daily phone swipes, allowing users to zoom and scroll to their hearts’ content without any screen time at all. Feel like you can’t live without this one? Visit Schillinger’s site for news of its imminent release. Follow him on Instagram.
