This Anti-Smartphone Will Keep You Connected (But Not Distracted) Hero Image

It may be smart to stay off your smartphone. As we constantly feel the need to check our messages and emails, scroll through our Instagram feeds, take photos of where we are and what we're eating, we're never really living in the moment.

Yes, the solution could be to leave your phone at home and completely disconnect, but what if you don't want to go off the grid completely? What if there were an emergency?

Enter the Light Phone. It's the size of a credit card, lightweight, lasts 20 days on a charge, does nothing but make and answer calls, and costs $100.

You can leave your smartphone at home, forward your calls to the Light Phone, and go be present out in the world.

Smartphones have made our lives easier in many ways, but they've also made it easier for us to miss out on things around us. The Light Phone could help us live more consciously without feeling that "Am I missing something?" discomfort of completely disconnecting.
