As an attempt to stop the human race from decreasing their social skills with every Tinder swipe or Facebook scroll they perform, the Dumb Phone Case prevents users from doing anything other than making a call.
The plastic phone case surrounds the entire phone, with only twelve circular cut outs for the number pad and a rectangular opening around the call button. However, the number icons on an iPhone do not line up in the same pattern as app icons. Therefore, a user can only make a phone call -- no texts or Tweets.
This simplistic Dumb Phone case is meant to make consumers smarter, limiting the amount of time that people spend mindlessly scrolling on social media or mobile apps, and encouraging more real live sociability.
