Chopstick-Holder-Case / Phone Case


In both Western and Eastern cultures, it can be very rude to be playing games, apps, or using social networks on smartphones at the dinner table.

The Chopstick Holder Case is a phone case which has a chopstick holder on the back. This requires the user to put his/her phone face-down on the table while eating, forcing user to interact with the people around them instead.
An addition function of the chopstick stand is that it can be used as a kickstand for watching movies.
