Researchers in Japan have revealed a 3D-printed wheeled smartphone case that lets your device move away from you when the alarm goes off and will also roll toward you whenever a notification pops up. So far, the case is equipped with three functions — Runaway Snooze, Hard Push and Scale Trace, Daily Mail reported.

Runaway Snooze is an alarm application enhanced by motion. When the user tries to hold the phone to snooze, it senses his hand and escapes from it. Hard Push is a new way to inform the user of incoming important notifications and when an important notification comes, the phone moves toward the user to encourage him to check. Scale Trace allows the case to take accurate measurements of a given space.
Talking about smartphone innovations, a startup based in the US had recently launched a smart laptop shell that turns your Android smartphone into a laptop. The shell called the Superbook makes it more convenient and affordable for people in developing countries like India and South Africa to carry the product to their office in their pocket.
