The growth of technologies is currently utilized not only adults, but also children. The society of all ages have been using these sophisticated devices, such as smartphone, to support their daily life. No wonder if we find people who are busy operating a smartphone in every place.
But this could have negative impacts for the children. Smartphone addiction will inhibit the kids’ developmental process. Because of that, a Japanese venture has developed a smartphone case designed to help parents protect their children from becoming addicted to the mobile devices.
One of Japan’s technology company plans to begin selling the smartphone case in late August, 2017. This smartphone’s case is called Otomos, which it allows parents to set time restrictions and prevent children from using their phone while walking. A child’s smartphone is fixed inside the case with a screw and cannot be detached without a special tool.
How parents use the Otomos?
They can use their own smartphones to control their child’s daily phone usage. If their kid tries to exceed the limit, the phone automatically enters sleep mode. But if parents don’t have smartphone, the settings can be made from a website.
The case can directly deactive the mobile devise if it detects walking motion. Parents will receive automatic messages if it senses a huge shock, such as through an accident.
Now, parents’ concern about this issue can be solved!
