The compartment in the Juke, while optional, urges drivers to disconnect while on the road

Everyone’s been there. You’re cruising down the road, your phone buzzes and you catch yourself dangerously juggling 60mph with typing “im omw”. That’s why Nissan wants to simply brick your phone while driving. Embedded in the prototype armrest of the Nissan Juke is a “Signal Shield”. These Faraday cages disrupt electromagnetic fields with mesh. When your phone is deposited into these slots, the beams from cell towers do not reach your phone and vice versa.

Options like turning into Airplane Mode before you get into your car will have a similar effect. However, it won’t be as intuitive as just tossing your phone into a cage.
