"Third Eye" Invention Watches for Obstacles While You Are on Your Cell Phone

The world is a dangerous place. You can walk around, playing on your cell phone quite innocently, and suddenly find yourself in road traffic, falling into a fountain, or meeting a wild bear. Our ancient ancestors long struggled with the task of walking while texting, hoping for a solution.

Now, thanks to modern technology, we have one. Industrial designer Minwook Paeng invented the Third Eye. This is a gyroscopically controlled ultrasonic sensor that activates when you tilt your head down. It buzzes you when you are about to encounter an obstacle.

God forbid people look where they are walking. It says it will "buzz" when you're about to encounter an obstacle (it should be a shock, you deserve it for wearing the thing), but what does it do when you are about to step off the edge of something?
