DistractaGone is a smart box that can be used to lock up your phone for a pre-set time selected by you. The smart box for securing your smartphone away offers you a distraction-free time to concentrate on your job.

Even an enjoyable task like watching a movie becomes annoying when your smartphone keeps interrupting you with the notifications. DistractaGone is a handy gadget for those who can’t stop checking their handset every few minutes.

All you have to do is to place your phone inside DistractaGone, close the lid and set the timer for how long you want to keep your phone locked away. The user has five seconds to cancel after the lock button is pressed.

Once DistractaGone is locked, the only way to get your phone out is to wait until the timer runs out or to open the smart box forcefully.



DistractaGone is still in prototyping phase, and the design team has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring their product to the market.
