OFFdi / Speaker


OFFdi is a little different than other smartphone friendly speakers, it’s a smartphone bully speaker. Every minute, people receive endless posts, news, feeds and memes. They find it hard to simply pause and be offline for a minute.This device acts as a shield to block the phone from eyesight to prevent the urge of picking it up again. When the smartphone is placed on the device it is automatically switched to silent mode. Users can enable specific phone numbers to bypass the OFFdi settings in case of serious emergencies. Remaining silent, the light on the device changes colour to alert you of the incoming call.
