A new low tech 'noPhone' has been designed that could help people suffering from 'nomophobia,' the fear of being without their mobile devices.

Ingmar Larsen, one of the designers of the project, said that the device looks like a smartphone and feels like a smartphone, but that's where similarities end, ABC News reported.

He further explained that the idea for the project came from the fact that a lot of people around them nowadays are focused on their mobile devices and not on the social environment anymore, so they wanted to make people aware of their addiction by creating a product that could be used for their addiction, however it works as a placebo.

The group was still figuring out "the possibilities" for manufacturing and selling the noPhone and said it's something they hope to do in the future.
