Two US inventors (Dr. Xuesong Zhou and Dr. Wallace M. Curry Jr.) have invented a new key fob that prevents you from using your mobile device while driving. In order to use the car key you must slide the key of the fob which sends a signal to you device (connected by Bluetooth of RFID) that you have entered “driving mode”. While in driving mode teens are unable to use the phone (call or text) where adults can make and receive call (if a hands free handset is used) but texting is disabled. If calls are blocked they caller is informed automatically that the person is driving and they will get back to you as soon as they are stopped. All phone functions can be used once the key has been removed from the ignition and slid back into the fob.
See the demo video below (it will make more sense).
