This New Smartphone Helps You Take A Break From Your ... Smartphone

No apps. No texts. Just straight dialing ability.

The Light Phone Kickstarter

Technology is officially spiraling out of control. People have become so reliant on their cell phones that if they somehow forget it, they have an emotional breakdown. Science has also shown that phantom vibrations exist — people think their phone is vibrating when it's not.

We need a break, but where do we find it?

It just might be The Light Phone. Yup, it might sound crazy, but there is a Kickstarter out there for a phone for when you're away from your phone. It's the size of a credit card and lets you forward calls.

If you want to have a break from all those stupid Facebook game notifications while you're out for date night, you can grab this new phone. It's also a good option if you don't want to give your kid a smartphone right away, but you still want reach them.


The phone is going for $100 and it works for any carrier. It's a prepaid phone that you can load with minutes, and it has a SIM card, and an app that links it to your existing phone.

The Kickstarter's goal is to reach $200,000 and it is already reached the goal with $343,862, and counting. Who knew we would get the point where we want a phone away from phone? Very interesting.
