How many times have you annoyed when your dinner companions not separated from their smartphones? Now, IKEA Taiwan has come up with a solution spending meals together without the distraction of a cell phone. The ‘Phone-less Table’ features a hot plate that will only turn on when there are enough phones under it. The hot plate holds a pot that won’t properly heat up and cook the contents within (vegetables, soups, meats) with just one phone, so more will be needed.
The idea is everyone around the table will place their mobile devices in the designated area so they can enjoy their meal – and each other’s company – tech free.
