If you lost your cell phone or forgot it at home, what would life be like? Would you find it peaceful and freeing to be away from the ties of constant contact, or would you feel isolated around your friends? Everybody seems to be connected to their phones constantly, whether it’s taking endless photos, sending texts, typing a status update, or playing games. It’s easy to forget what life was like before we had miniature computers in our pockets. Do you remember a time when Mom would yell down the street for you to come home? Life has definitely changed.

This video shows exactly what it would be like, and you know it’s not far off the mark. How often have you been out to dinner just to see everyone around you typing away on their phones? How many of your friends need to take photos of everything, including their half-eaten burger?

Could you get by without your phone?
