Wear a Badge to Free You From the Tumult of Our Phones
How revamped walkie talkies could fit our distracted lifestyle
They used to call them bricks: plastic clunky objects that people lugged around to stay in contact with colleagues or friends. Remember walkie talkies?

The device is meant to solve communication challenges that we face every day. If you’ve ever missed a crucial life moment because you were distracted by looking at your phone, this could be the device for you.
