A group of Dutch entrepreneurs is hoping to build a business out of helping smartphone users manage their device addiction — via a Faraday cage housed inside a fancy looking hexagonal aluminum case designed to accommodate up to six handsets at a time.
So enough space to take an entire dinner party offline.
The case, called Block, is up for pre-order at this point, priced at €99 (~$105).
It’s not the first attempt to sell smartphone users their own personal Faraday cage for taking their device off the grid.
Block is being positioned more for social scenarios — so for people wanting to stop smartphones interfering with face-to-face conversations and offline socializing among groups of friends.

Opinion… * Man-Made
