Keeping kids focused on homework or family interaction can be difficult with so many digital devices around, so 'Ransomly' is a new kind of beacon that can block devices and set restrictions.

'Ransomly' works by being placed in a home in order to get users off their devices and interacting with one another or getting a task done. It enables parents to set certain restrictions for children like disabling access to a specific app until they have completed their homework.

The 'Ransomly' beacon is the work of Zachary Prager and can operate with a range of 70-meters, which makes it great for the whole home in order to block devices. The low-cost of the unit makes it suitable for a wide range of users to effectively get users off their devices and making the most of their time together.
