Can’t seem to get your friend to stop posting on Twitter or Facebook during happy hour? The advertising agency, Fischer & Friends, may have found the solution with the creation of the Offline Glass.
The Offline Glass has a portion of the thickened base cut out, requiring it to balance on a mobile device. Don’t have an iPhone? No problem: the glass was made to fit various types of mobile phones. Scared your phone will be damaged? Fischer & Friends took care of that too. The glass’ size and shape were fashioned to prevent condensation from damaging the phone.
Unveiled at the Salve Jorge bar in Brazil, the glass is designed to get people to engage more with their company, and remove them from the online world. With a society enamored with technology and the web, the bar acknowledges the importance of connecting with friends and family who are with you in the moment. The only question is: will this trend take off in corporate, well-connected America?
