YORO / Product supporting behavioural change


Yoro helps you foster your self-control, develop a healthier relationship with your phone, as well as other activities you love, and reduce your screen time before bed, leading to better sleep and wellbeing. It is a charging device and lamp that supports you in putting your phone away in exchange for reading a book. The induction charging platform invites you to put your phone to 'bed' by placing it on its soft surface. Yoro then lights up for you to be able to read the book you pick up at its base. The phone is placed to charge but also gives you the light to read - you are free to pick it up but have the choice to focus on reading instead.
