There have been several terrible products featured on Shark Tank over the years, but tonight's NoPhone was one of the worst yet. Although marketed as a solution to the crippling smartphone addictions faced by so many millennials, the overpriced hunk of plastic featured during an ill-advised segment of the show was really nothing more than a bad gag gift.
Once jolted away from their devices, the entrepreneurs made their pitch, and suffice to say, it wasn't very convincing. They referred to the product as "the pet rock of our generation," but they also billed it as a tool for helping phone addicts tune back into the real world. Later, they claimed that, although the NoPhone is technically just a piece of plastic, it's actually much more than a piece of plastic. Sorry guys, but the NoPhone really is just a piece of plastic — and at $18 for the selfie model, it's a huge waste of money. Those who desire a gag gift can find one for far cheaper, and those who wish to kick their phone addictions can find much more effective ways to do so.
I try never to agree with Mr Wonderful but the No Phone is a piece of plastic! #SharkTank— angela alston (@jenean123) April 9, 2016
