    Hello All...

    As we all know (since the forum is already flooded with the threads) that @Ruby G. surprised us yesterday with a crazy and yet interesting contest...

    I don't know how (considering me being a sloth...) I even got this (stupid) idea... And even decided to use my precious time to write this down... :p *No worker sloths were harmed in the making of this thread...

    So let me start with my product pitch...
    "So sharks community staffs "Gary C. and a few senior members of the software team"...
    Have you ever dropped your phone on the floor (from your pocket or the desk or well because you just wanted to try that free cup of coffee at OnePlus service center...) and you felt that experience to be a bit boring??? Maybe this is the reason why people don't like falling phones!!!
    What if something could be done to make this interesting???
    Have you seen those apps which makes the phone scream when it falls??? No!!!
    Here's an example...

    What if we can make this feature in-build in the phone itself???
    Just think of all those screaming phones around you!!! That's the future we deserve!!!

    Who are the users?
    - Anyone who can handle a falling phone...
    - Klutzy people... :p
    - People with slow reaction time... ;)

    What is the proposed function?
    - Making users aware of their falling phone...
    - Or it can be a funny Easter egg... ;)

    What is the user value?
    - No more accidental lost phones (during movies at theaters or dinners at restaurants...)
    - A funny surprise in some important meeting...

    If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?
    - AFAIK, there are no other phones with this feature... ;)

    Now...
    The logic behind this is simple... Once there was a lazy sloth and he was part of this very interesting community... One day he saw this amazing contest and decided to take part in it... And so he spend days and nights... And came up with solution of one of the biggest problem in current human (and sloth) world!!!
    *You are out on a date with your girl/wife...*
    *You just finished the movie and are leaving the theater...*
    *Once you are out, you see your girl/wife panicking and searching something inside her handbag...*
    "What happened???" You ask...
    "I can't find my phone!!!" She responds...
    "You have a PHONE!!!" You are shocked...
    "Will you be serious for a second..." She says not understanding your humor... :rolleyes:
    "You never brought it with you..." You said...
    "I DID..." She is angry now...
    "I think I dropped it in the theater!!!" She continued...
    "Oh no... No no no... We are not going back it there!!!" You tried saying...
    "Excuse me, I think my girl/wife dropped her phone inside..." You actually said to the guard...
    *After that sympathetic look from the guard, you finally got in and after several minutes of searching, you finally found the phone...*
    *Now you are 30 mins late for your Dinner reservation and with bit of luck, you get the tables...*
    *You enjoy the food and reach the home...*
    "Have you seen my phone???" Your girl/wife asks...
    "Don't tell me!!!" You look at her...
    "Should I check the car???" She asks...
    "Don't bother, its not there!!!" You respond...
    "Let me call the restaurant..." She asks for your phone...
    "here..." Your hand her the phone...
    *She looks at it and looks at you and fights and you are sleeping on the couch tonight...*
    *You spend whole night thinking how stupid it was to hide the phone that she forgot at the restaurant...*

    Not based on any real life incident... I promise you...o_O
    If your phone could scream when it fells down, it would avoid those problems... ;)

    And screen transitions is a no brainier... But here it is...

    Note: That is my attempt on recreating the famous painting... :p
    And that is our beloved bella... :cool:

    Please let me know your views on this idea... :D

    Hahaha. I really laugh when I imagine this in my mind as a real life event. Just imagine your phone's falling, screaming and then the look of the people next to you. You got my kudos for this @GopalB. (Y)

    the big question I have is...

    How many times do you drop your phones to even come up with this feature? xDD
