A smart phone without all the smug smart phone stuff
The Light Phone is just a phone. No browser, no apps, no games… just the buttons needed to make a call. The creators, Joe Hollier and Kaiwei Tang, made the phone during Google's 30 Weeks incubator in NYC. The phone costs $100 and lasts 20 days between charges.
“We started building this because it became very clear that true happiness means being present. This has been written about by so many of the smartest minds since Seneca. So much of our days are spent connected and staring at screens that we are losing that presence in so many situations. We built the Light Phone as a way for people to find balance with their connectedness. It’s not that we think people should never connect again, it’s just that taking a break is extremely healthy in every sense of the word,” said Hollier.
