Part of the Ikea’s new Sittning line, the “Logged Out” placemat is designed to shame all of your dinner guests into surrendering and ignoring their mobile devices while everyone is enjoying a meal together. It doesn’t stop emails, text messages, or notifications from getting through, so you won’t miss any emergency calls, but it does stop you from being distracted by anyone who’s not actually at your table—or from displaying rude manners while you dine.

Someone needs to make this, but with a cell signal blocking material in the pocket, so that people wont just hear their phone go off and check it.
