Phone-Under-Glass / glass


As a kind of communication tools, cellphones play an important role of our life. However, many people depend on cellphones too much to live without them. What’s worse, they addict to virtual environments and ignore the real emotion. This glass will be up-right after putting down the phone under the glass. Then the drink will not be spilled. The design of the glass aims at helping people to change their behavior and bring people together face to face.
