New York, NY (September 7th, 2016)
Introducing the NoPhone Air, the first NoPhone that is no phone at all.
When you open the NoPhone Air packaging, it looks like there is nothing inside. With absolutely no features, the NoPhone Air feels nothing in your hand. It's a completely distraction-free device in frustration-free packaging.
The NoPhone Air is the perfect gift for people who need no phone. Now everyone can put down their real phones, pick up the NoPhone Air and enjoy real life.
Those with patience can now pre-order a NoPhone Air on Kickstarter. The campaign has already seen tremendous interest, especially for being the first crowdfunding effort to finance the creation of an empty box.
"The least advanced NoPhone ever."

The NoPhone Air was not unveiled in a 7,000-seat auditorium. There was no keynote presentation and nobody was able to watch it. The NoPhone creators unveiled the NoPhone Air prototype to attendees of the Fireside Conference on September 10th, 2016 in Canada. Smartphones were not allowed at the conference and attendees were given Original NoPhones to help ease their no phone stress throughout the weekend.
Unlike actual air, the NoPhone Air is not for everyone. Those who need a smooth rectangle in their hand at all times can still order the Original NoPhone for $10.
"We took away the headphone jack
and then we took away everything else."

What is the Fireside Conference?
The Fireside Conference is an off the grid and all-inclusive retreat for startups, founders, entrepreneurs, investors and thought leaders. It takes place in the middle of nowhere between Toronto and Ottawa on a 750+ acre green-space with a beautiful private lake. We host speaker sessions around campfires while roasting marshmallows and discussing ideas that change the world. It's a transformational experience for all attendees and there's truly nothing like it that we know of.

Why does NoPhone exist?
Aside from numerous innovative contributions to the field of mobile communication, smartphones have inadvertently programmed a compulsory need in humans to continuously engage in physical contact with a piece of plastic. On average, a single device will use its technological wizardry to summon a user 150 times a day. This constant, near uncontrollable impulse for contact with mobile devices has noticeably diminished human-to-human interactions.
The NoPhone was created to combat the rapid decline of real life social engagement that has stemmed from chronic smartphone use. It’s sleek, plastic design serves as an idle hand’s security blanket and is devised to alleviate the constant need humans have to hold a mobile device without preventing users from fully experiencing their immediate surroundings.
The NoPhone was created by Van Gould, Ingmar Larsen, Chris Sheldon and Ben Langeveld.
