Phone Substitutes To Cure Smartphone Addiction: Why We Obsess Over Touchscreen Devices
Image/photoThe addiction is real. The mini heart attack moment we have when we cannot find our phones is proof enough of our dependence.

Now, Austrian designer Klemens Schillinger has created a device to help smartphone addicts cope in its absence. He has named it the Substitute Phone.

Schillinger designed five facsimile phones, made of black polyoxymethylene plastic, with stone beads embedded on the surface. The idea is to allow users to replicate familiar actions, such as scrolling, pinching, or swiping. The goal is to use it as a coping mechanism for someone trying to check their phones less.

Reckon they'll work as designed?
