Are you too much addicted to your smartphone that you can’t leave it even while driving? Do you have a bad habit of texting while driving or walking? Well, no worries, because a new device, namely Urban Periscope, lets you keep an eye on your surroundings while you’re using the phone.
The device features an angled mirror which “redirects your vision 90 degrees”, so you can use your phone while driving or walking without having to look up. It is made using periscopic lenses.
It comes in the shape of a case. Users can fix the device in their smartphone case so that while they are busy with their smartphones, they can still monitor what is in front of them.
Urban Periscope was developed by Chase Kimball, Ingmar Larsen and Whitney Keller, the same persons who invented NoPhone. The NoPhone is a technology-free alternative to constant hand-to-phone contact that allows you to stay connected with the real world.
According to the website of the developers of this product, “The Urban Periscope is a completely analog phone case that uses the principles of the periscope to redirect your vision so you can look at your phone and interact with the world around you at the exact same time,”
The Urban Periscope sits right over a normal smartphone case, but it’s still in the early stages. The device will be available only for iPhone 6.
There is no official release date announced for the product by the company.
