We’ve all been there, right? That heart-stopping moment when your phone takes a nosedive onto your unsuspecting face in bed. It’s a rite of passage in the modern age. But fear not, because a clever Japanese inventor has come to the rescue with the “Face Smartphone Shield.”
Picture this: a retractable, helmet-like contraption that springs into action when it senses your phone hurtling toward your face. In the blink of an eye, this technological wonder unfolds to shield your precious mug from the impending slap. It’s pretty much your personal face bodyguard.
Equipped with sensors on both sides and positioned about a foot above you, the shield leaps into action at the mere whisper of an incoming phone. Your face becomes a fortress of invulnerability in the war against gravity and clumsy hands.
But here’s the twist – this lifesaving gadget wasn’t exactly designed with your cozy pillow in mind. It’s a bit of a diva in that department. So, while the concept is pure genius, the practical application might need a little more brainstorming. Still, you’ve got to admit, it’s a pretty cool invention, even if it does prefer a drama-free relationship with your pillow. 😄
Oh, also because of the reaction time, the sensors had to be up there which means holding your phone usually high up while lying down. To be honest, it does not look like a very comfortable phone holding distance.
