While it may seem hard to believe, another updated smartphone has been released, only this time the 'NoPhone Zero' boasts no features, no camera and no screen. An updated version of the first NoPhone, this one is also designed with technology-addicted users in mind, helping them detach from their smartphones in order to reconnect and engage with human beings and society.

The NoPhone Zero is a rectangular piece of plastic that is meant to replace the comfortable feeling of a smartphone in the palm of your hand or a back pocket. Suggestions made by the company for getting used to the new device include using eye contact, smiling and having real conversations. The parody smartphone device features a "thin, light and completely wireless design."

Achieving its full funding on Kickstarter in 48 hours, the technology-free device seems surprisingly popular. For lovers of sarcasm, parody and human interaction -- the NoPhone Zero is the perfect handheld device.
