Concept: the Blocc phone is a minimalistic black-and-white phone (which can switch to colour when you need it)

I absolutely love this concept. Most of my smartphone screen time is about reading emails or browsing the web, and I can see how a black and white version of that would make it more relaxing – and save battery.

The fact that you can switch to colour at the touch of button is great, and well-thought of. Plus, it’s great to see this type of project coming from a European company.

It’s 359 EUR and due to ship in Autumn – and can be reserved now. Check out their website for more info.
