Realism Smart Device
People love smart devices. We share with our smart devices, eat with them, drive with them, work with them, hold conversations with them, and sleep next to them. We do just about everything we can with them, but at what cost?
How much do we love smart devices?
We have purchased over a billion smartphones and downloaded several billion apps. In five years there will be over 10 billion connected smart devices in use.
They are really, really addictive.
Most people check their smart devices every 6 to 12 minutes, and anywhere from 80 to 150 times a day.
Kids get addicted, too.
Children 8-18 are on smart devices and TV over 50 hours per week. That’s more than a full-time job.
How bad is the problem?
On September 20, 2014, this man documented a near disaster in flight. His video went viral.
To which the New York Times said:
A Defining Question in an iPhone Age: Live for the Moment or Record It?
The Digital Barrier
Smart devices create a digital barrier between us and the world right in front of us. So we created a solution.[caroufredsel id=”2066″]
Meet Realism. The smart device for the good of humanity.
Realism removes the digital barrier and connects users with the amazing world and infinite possibility right in front of them. To activate Realism’s full potential, we ask users to power down other smart devices for a short time, and to use Realism to live for the moment. Realism isn’t anti-technology. It is for the correct use of technology… which is about balance. Realism is not for bumping into things while texting. Realism is for being present, for quality time with friends and family, for great conversations, for concentration, for true connection. The stuff that makes the world better.
We believe Realism is more than a product. It is a movement that embraces both technology and reality. At The Company of Others we believe in being part of change, and in creating a present worth sharing.
