Hi, I’m Alex, dad of an addicted teen to his phone, for a year, I’m working on a projet to limit teen phone overexposure : I’ve created POZZZ, a smart pouch similar to the cookie box in The Social Dilemma except that your child is involved in a positive manner, let me explain…
My son is spending hours on his smartphone, often it’s creating friction and conflict comes in. I tried to regulate his screen time by confiscating his phone, turning off the wifi, and also setting up a parental control, nothing is working very well so far. Since I’m running a company in smart textile, a year ago, I decided to create a smart pouch with an app to put my kid’s phone hidden from him with rewards and gamification for every phone pause, POZZZ was born.
Every 15 min the phone is in the pouch is rewarded via a zipper / Bluetooth activated points system. POZZZ also has a night mode to preserve teens sleep which is very precious. POZZZ works as well for adults.
We are on Kickstarter for 3 days and we need the help of a larger community.
So if you are curious and if you want to back the project, it’s here : https://pozzz.kckb.st/51d41139
Thank you so much, best,
