FADE / Phone case + Screen guard for tackling FOMO.


Mobile phones were created to improve the quality of our lives, yet does the opposite if we are addicted to it.
FADE fuses both an electrochromic screen protector and a phone case to hack mobile phone addiction and take back control of our time and freedom. This works by conducting electrical charge from the phone's NFC chip while simultaneously rendering the phone unusable by blacking out the screen.
Without triggers to propagate, the brain's reward pathways are starved of stimulation and the impulse to use the phone gradually dies. This kills the triggers that compel us to use our phones, thus freeing us from our phones.
