I let Yondr lock my smartphone in a sock so I could “live in the moment” | Ars Technica:

This sounds like a novel idea:

Two weeks ago, I heard about a new company called Yondr that was making lightweight smartphone socks-with-locks that prevent the smartphone’s user from accessing the device during a concert, movie, or party.

At the time, Yondr had quietly teamed up with two Bay-area music venues—Milk Bar in San Francisco and Stork Club in Oakland—for a pair of trial runs in which concert-goers would be asked to place their phones in the Yondr case before entering the venue in order to create a phone-free space. I was curious—would people even go for this?

I’m sick of people pulling out their phones all the time even during concerts or in the cinema. If this ever came to Singapore I’m definitely supporting it!
