i-Mute / NFC gate

i-Mute
i-Mute

When our favorite song suddenly rings from our mobile phone in the middle of a meeting, a concert or a movie, even in library, church or museum, it interrupts other people and makes us very impolite. Furthermore, we probably forget to turn on the volume afterwards and miss couple of important calls.

“i-Mute” is a gate which can automatically turn off the volume of your mobile phone to vibrant mode when you walk through it, then turn on the volume when walking through the opposite side.
