Phone distraction is a major safety issue, leading to problems as simple as walking into lamp poles to running into other vehicles on the road.

Now a concept device has been posted on YouTube by Alex Cornel which provides a solution to the problem without impeding our phone addiction.

Lookout is a new type of camera that looks ahead, so you can keep looking down. Finally, you can see what’s in front of you, without ever having to look up from your phone.

Lookout is enabled by a breakthrough camera system which allows the lens to tilt forward and constantly stream your immediate surroundings to an intelligent overlay, at the top of your screen.

A visionary awareness algorithm is what alerts the Lookout display to activate whenever your attention is split between your phone and your life. So you know you can feel free to keep your eye off the ball.

(Yes, I know it’s a parody, but is it wrong that I want this in real life?)
