Mobile Phone Jail Cell

We agree that smartphones have made our lives easier, but there’s a difference between swiftly responding to emails and doom scrolling on Facebook. If you find yourself mindlessly breezing through social media, knowing you’ve got more important things to do, then you need a Mobile Phone Jail Cell. Lock away your phone and spend more time getting things done! You can also lock away other things, from chocolate bars to your child’s  (or partner’s) PS5 remote if they’ve been naughty!

We recommended jumping on the bandwagon and getting yourself a new Oculus Quest VR Headset, which can be used for more than just gaming. This one comes with touch controllers to easily make every gameplay that little more realistic.
