Halcyon is a concept industrial design project created by Mike George. It’s a phone to escape the digital world. The idea is simple, we all know that smartphones have completely changed the way we live. The average person spends 3.6 hours a day on their smartphones on social media. The smartphones got as connected, and yet people have never felt more lonely. Mike’s idea is to go back to simplicity and reduce the venues where people can fabricate personas and end up missing out on what’s important. Halcyon is a flip-phone. A gorgeous one and it embraces the trend of ‘digital detoxing.’ More at ABDUZEEDO.
I really like that. I don’t know why exactly and I probably wouldn’t use it, but I like the detoxing element.
