Live in the moment with a Phonekerchief

start-up-idea-phonekerchiefA product designer in New York has unveiled her Phonekerchief design, which can be wrapped around a mobile phone to stop mobile signals.


The $15 silver-lined cloth, by New York designer Ingriz Zweifel, blocks mobile signals so people can show family and friends how much they care about them.


The Phonekerchief has the words “My phone is off for you” emblazoned across it.


“I actually talked to a woman who had recently gone on a date with a man who left his phone at home for her,” Zweifel says.


The Phonekerchief suggests people are becoming increasingly disheartened by our mobile-obsessed culture. Is there another way to tap into this trend?
