The third idea of the five that I have taken forward from the 100 ideas. This one has remained unchanged from the initial idea generation session a month or so ago and was the inspiration behind calling it Avoiding Temptation.
The basic premise behind this idea is a robot that will run away with your phone or other piece of technology if it makes a sound or if you try and pick it up. It is saving you from yourself in a way. Another idea which this could be turned into instead of a robot is some sort of arm that holds the phone and whenever it goes off, it moves the phone further away from you and once it reaches a certain point it will drop the phone into a conveniently placed bin. A little drastic yes, but it is the same sort of idea that occurred in the second idea too where if your phone went off a certain number of times, it would turn red, this one will drop your phone into the bin.
This is a very simple idea and would do as it is supposed to and would be obvious, but on the other hand it might be too simplistic and there are similarities behind this one and ideas from previous years. But it is a possibility and it can be developed.
