Do you want a break from constantly checking your smartphone, or do you wish your friends and family would take a break? A new Israeli product called Pause will safely store up to six phones to give you some time to focus on the present.
The sleek rectangular metallic box locks out smartphone distractions, the company says. It serves “as a designated spot to check-in up to six phones during meetings at the office or quality family time at home,” and it blocks Wi-Fi signals and incoming calls, text messages and emails.
Just by being present, whether on your coffee table or in the conference room, Pause provides a constant reminder to “just put your phones away” when focus is needed elsewhere, the statement said.
“With today’s hectic lifestyle, people are constantly on the go – and constantly on their cellphones,” said Ori Levin, co-founder and CEO of Pause. “The distraction has seeped into all aspects of our lives and there is a real need to reconnect and focus on the present.”
