Is this a good idea?

One Darwin cafe has decided to do something about our obsession with phones and it will cost you $2!

According to NT News, Cornucopia Museum Cafe Manager, Aziz Wan Don, is charging customers every time they’re caught with a device in their hand.

Your phone, tablet, video game – any digital device – will see $2 put into the “naughty jar”.

Wan Don says the idea is to get people to reconnect with the real world.

“They need to enjoy their days together,” he told NT News.

“Technology is taking over our lives… it’s actually quite funny when I take meals to the table.”
