Yondr Wants Phone-Free Concerts

02:01 PM Monday 9/29/14 | |

With everyone from Jack White to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs asking fans to pocket their cell phones during concerts, it was only a matter of time before someone came up with a venue-side solution.

Enter Yondr, a new technology device that makes it impossible to use your phone during a show without stepping outside. Fans’ phones are placed into special cases as they enter a venue, according to Yondr’s website. Once a fan enters the “phone-free zone,” the cases will lock.

Though fans always maintain possession, they won’t be able to use their phones without stepping outside the phone-free zone and unlocking the case.

Graham Dugoni, founder of Yondr, told SF Weekly that fans who try to smuggle phones in without putting them into Yondr cases would be booted from the venue if caught using them during the show.

“The goal isn't to be the Gestapo,” he said. “Technology is fine but in certain contexts, it erodes the experience." Bay Area venues including Oakland’s Stork Club are using the technology, the paper said.
