Google Working On Paper Smartphone For An Ultimate Digital Detox

|

Google has a novel idea for its next smartphone. However, keep in mind that the teased design can't make calls or take selfies. The latest idea is to make a Paper Phone, technically, not a phone at all. The design shows just a piece of printed paper with selected apps and a few snips to hold a credit card.

The Google Paper Phone is part of the digital well-being experiment that aims to give users a ‘digital detox'. The digital well-being experiment was announced the same week as the Google Pixel 4 launch. The Google Paper Phone is an attempt to curb the ever-growing tech gadgets and technology in our lives.

The Google Paper Phone comes under the company's open-source experiment, like the ‘desert island' program which gives users access to only their most essential apps for 24 hours. The Google Paper Phone project "helps you have a little break away from your digital world by printing a personal booklet of the key information you'll need that day," the blog post says.

The Google Paper Phone has some customizable ‘paper apps', the blog notes, like recipes, notepads, phrasebooks, for instance. The idea here is to allow users to get their tasks done and at the same time, help to unwind away from technology. The experimental Android app is available to download and the app codes are available on Github.
