Bryan Brunsell has come up with up with a conceptual solution – moving the iPhone to the top of the phone, and placing a mini screen of what you’re about to walk into (via Geekologie). Also great for stalking and adding pictures to your creepy collection. Check out a few pictures from Buzzfeed on how it might work.
