If you need some help staying off your phone at the dinner table, IKEA has an idea. In a video from IKEA Taiwan, they showcase an ingenious table that needs you to be off your phone in order to eat.

As these diners sit down for hotpot, the broth isn't boiling (not that anyone notices since they're all on their phones). A server raises the center platform with the pot on it, revealing a sensor underneath. The catch? Multiple phones need to be stowed under the pot for the broth to boil.

Check out the video above.
