Do you know someone who needs this?
We all know someone who’s surgically attached to their mobile phone. And if you can’t think of anyone, it’s probably you!
But walking along and looking at your phone can result in a few head-on collisions – with either other pedestrians or even lampposts.
One gadget though, is looking to change all this. Thanks to Urban Periscope, you can now walk along, phone in hand, and never have to avert your eyes from your Twitter feed or WhatsApp conversations.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that this is a novelty product but, sadly, it’s 100% real.
When did we become so engrossed in our phones that we needed a personal periscope to make sure we don’t bump into other people? It’s just another sign that we’re far too addicted to our phones.
Sure, there are times when we need to be kept in the loop and ‘on the grid’. But if we’re starting to lose our common sense (and sense of direction) maybe it’s time we put them down and took a closer look at the world around us.
Do you know someone who needs one of these gadgets? Or do you, like me, think the best solution is to just look up from our phones every once in a while?
Have a great week
