IKEA Made A Hot Plate To Keep You From Staring At Your Phone During Dinner

02.01.16 3 years ago

IKEA knows the value of an unplugged family dinner. Which is why they’ve invented what might be their most genius product yet: a hot plate that will only heat with the aid of surrendered smartphones. (You probably have to assemble it yourself, though.)

As you can see from the video above, diners in Taiwan got a chance to test out the fancy new gadget at an in-store dinner. The more phones that were added, the hotter the plate got, which in turn heated the meal. Innovative, right? (No smartphones were harmed in the making of this meal. It’s not actually hot underneath the plate.)
