Okay, we know full well we aren’t the only ones out there who have been too invested in our smartphones and accidentally bumped into someone or something.
While Firebox’s i-Dodge is one of the better April Fool’s pranks we’ve seen in a while, there’s actually a real need for it on the market. The i-Dodge is a slimline smartphone case that uses a sensor and lighting system to alert you of any oncoming pedestrians or inanimate objects.
If part of the case glows amber then an object is nearing you, but a red glow means danger is imminent. You’ll never need to pry yourself away from Instagram ever again.
A spokesperson for Firebox.com said “Whilst we want to fool as many people as possible with i-Dodge this Friday, we feel there may actually be a real demand for this product. Visitors to the Firebox site on Friday will be able to register their interest on a sign-up box via the product page, so if we receive over 5,000 email signatures via the page, we’ll look seriously into making i-Dodge a reality, perhaps via Kickstarter.”
You can register your interest in the i-Dodge through its official listing.
