Smartphones are making us dumb—might dumb cases make us smart again?

Many phone cases in the market today put the emphasis on protection, design and practicality. Few of these models focus on actually taking away the usability of a phone, instead emphasizing the phone's best aesthetic and practical features. But Dumb Phone Case wants to do just that. With the tagline “Be a Normal Human Again,” the team stands behind the philosophy that smartphones are making humans dumb—so dumb cases can make them smart again.

The name also comes from the concept of turning a smartphone into a dumb phone. The case sits over the screen of a phone, stopping the owner from using it for anything other than making a phone call.
