Healing Phone / Toy Phone

Healing Phone

The growing number of people looking on smartphones while walking around (Smombie) is a serious social problem. The reason for holding a phone is a sense of psychic stability as people feel anxiety when not holding their phones. POKET is a product that replaces a role of a sense of grip of phones which helps relieve the stress caused by the visual information. By touching POKET instead of your phone, you can experience interesting texture and a feel of balloon or jelly like grip. Furthermore, by being linked with the app, it directs you to look forward not taking your phones out as you are being notified phone calls or messages only by icons.
