It acts as a phone surrogate for those addicted to their smartphones, media reports said.

"Phone addiction is real. And it is everywhere. It is ruining your dates. It is distracting you at concerts. It is disrupting you in movie theaters. It is clogging up sidewalks. Now, there is a real solution," its developers wrote on its page on Kickstarter - the world's largest funding platform for creative projects.

It is a technology-free alternative to constant hand-to-phone contact that allows you to stay connected with the real world, reads the description.

With a thin, light and completely wireless design, NoPhone enables the user to carry a smooth, cold plastic without forgoing any potential engagement with his/her direct environment.
