New Beer Glass Requires Cell Phone to Stand Upright
You go out to eat, you go to a bar, you go anywhere with a bunch of friends to enjoy each other’s compnany only to have everyone nose-deep in their smart phone. This new beer glass, designed by Fischer & Friends, enforces human interaction by requiring your mobile device to act as a stand for your beer or drink.
I’m guilty of this on more than one occasion. Cutting off the world around me because I need to see what my friend tweeted or because I forgot to check in with Foursquare because, obviously, people need to know how much fun I’m having without them. I’m all in favor of this. Anyone can check their phone at any time, anywhere. It doesn’t need to be when we’re taking time out of our busy day to grab a quick drink with someone.
