Robotic Third Eye Smartphone
Designer Minwook Paeng created a strange-looking robotic Third Eye designed to help one walk safely while using a smartphone. Think of it as a webcam of sorts encased in a custom case affixed to the forehead using thin gel pad. However, there is no camera, but rather a small speaker, gyroscope, and a sonar sensor. When you tilt your head down, the gyroscope triggers the plastic eyelid to open and the sonar starts monitoring the area in front. Read more for a video and additional information.

When the sonar detects an obstacle, the speaker sounds off, thus preventing an accident. More specifically, the black component you see that looks like a pupil is actually an ultrasonic sensor for sensing distance. As you near an obstacle, the ultrasonic sensor detects this and informs the user using the connected buzzer.

By using smartphones in a bad posture, our neck vertebrae are leaning forward giving us ‘turtle neck syndrome’ and the pinkies we rest our phones on are bending along the way. When a few generations go by, these small changes from smartphone usage will accumulate and create a completely different, new form of mankind,” said the designer to Dezeen.
