Device for smartphone addicts launched

A new smartphone which is completely technology-free has been launched, to tackle internet addiction.

The NoPhone has no screen, no battery and is basically just a smartphone-shaped lump of plastic!

The company behind the device says it will help people "stay connected with the real world", instead of staring at their phone screen all day.

The maker says it's a "solution" to mobile phones ruining concerts, cinema trips or hanging out with friends.

NoPhone was launched on a website that lets fans pledge money to develop the product - and it's already raised more than $7,000.

The website boasts that the phone is shatterproof and waterproof - but it can't send texts or make calls!
