third eye blind

Industrial designer Minwook Paeng has created a prototype prosthetic eye that is meant to keep vigil whilst the wearer is fiddling if their phone to help prevent distracted pedestrians from getting in accidents themselves and becoming a nuisance or threat to others sharing their space. Automatically awaking once it detects the head is tilted downward and the neck slumped—possibly also a good posture re-enforcer—and buzzes to warn one of approaching obstacles, the satirical though appreciable in application project examines how phono-sapiens are evolving and our relations to our gadgets and accessories.
