This popped up in my timeline over the weekend and got me thinking.
Its 2017 and our mobile phone is now more part of our daily lives than ever before. With the eCommerce boom social media browsing and email we are constantly glued to the dam things and as I have said before if you look in a coffee shop,restaurant or public transport we all have our heads buried in our phones not minding whats going on around us and this is a bad thing and its getting worse..
Siempo phone is due to launch this year via crowdfunding and its hear to tackle this very problem but in a more controlled manner,they see it as a mindful phone for the modern age….
Siempo is the first mindful phone that limits distractions, without compromising access to the modern services that we depend on – including synced contacts and calendar, group messaging and wifi tethering. Siempo is the only phone designed with your best intentions in mind, helping you be more focused, present and fulfilled.
Ok so we have no idea of the specs of this device but can it really be of value to anyone today? It says it will limit distractions, We can already limit ourselves from distraction with apps,there is flight mode and there is an off button on all phones, or we can simply just leave the dam phone at home..Yeah I know not as easy as it sounds….
Unless this phone has full control of how you use it and no way around it by the owner personally adjusting the settings for me its a pointless product. But then lets wait and see what it has to offer..
If this is your thing keep an eye out HERE
Now on Kickstarter which is expected to ship in December 2017.. Thats a LONG WAIT and will cost around €300.. Is it worth it ???
