Couples, it seems, are endangering their relationships by staring at their separate phones all the time: even during date nights (that’s an old-time concept, of course).

Today’s invention is a rubber ‘chastity belt’ into which a couple can lock their phones when they are supposed to be having some quality time. The phones face each other so that the screens can’t be seen without one person unlocking their lock (probably not a sign of commitment).

This means no selfies or pictures of dinner.

After an agreed duration of the evening’s activities, each person can retrieve their device and catch up on their social networking. Just the pause in the perpetual instagramming may help them realise how futile that is, compared to chatting with their significant other.
