8th Jun 2021

A South Korean industrial designer has come up with a very unique solution to prevent obsessive smartphone users from bumping into things. In other words, these users are smartphone zombies who cannot take their eyes off of their screen. Sadly, there are a lot of people who walk on the roads while surfing through their phone. Not only is this a very dangerous habit, it shows how addictive smartphones are.

The South Korean mind behind this is Paeng Min-wook, who is a 28-year-old designer. Moreover, he calls this particular invention of his “The Third Eye”. Also, it actually does what it sounds like. This small but advanced piece of machinery consists of a robotic eyeball which is strapped to the users foreheads. Furthermore, whenever the user is going to bump into something, the eyeballs gives out a beeping sound. This alarms the users, making them conscious. The primary thinking that has motivated this is to provide users with an injury-free smartphone experience on the go.

The Third Eye: What More?

There is a translucent eyelid in the device which senses when the user’s head is bent down to look at their smartphone. Additionally, what it does is when the user comes within one to two metres of an obstacle, it beeps to warn the user. This makes the user conscious and evade that particular obstacle.

Paeng believes that we live in a world where a third eye is much needed for future mankind. Paeng is a postgraduate in innovation design engineering at the Royal College of art and Imperial College London. Additionally, he says that as smartphones have become an integral part of our lives, we need this extra third eye. He is definitely taking the prevention is better than cure phrase seriously. In fact, when looking into how many accidents take place every year to smartphone zombies, this comes as a much gadget.

The Third Eye primarily uses a gyro sensor to trace the angle of the user’s neck. Additionally, it uses an ultrasonic sensor to calculate the distance between the robotic eye and obstacles within the particular distance. Moreover, both these sensors are connected to an open-source single-board microcontroller which is fueled by a battery pack.

Also, Paeng says that the The Third Eye is not a solution but rather a warning to such smartphone users. This is a satirical solution to basically allow users to realize and get rid of their smartphone addiction.
