The more ostentatious, the better. It should be about the size and beauty of a fine humidor. Some would be gold, silver or platinum plated. But, you could also have ones that appeared to be mahogany, rosewood or teak. Market it as "The Privacy Box", or perhaps just pBox. You pitch it as a critical accessory for the upwardly mobile. When you absolutely need privacy, just put the phone in the "Pbox".
Expensive lawyers would use it to reassure clients that they took their privacy seriously. C-level executives would use it to highlight the importance of their discussions. The ritual of placing the cell phones in the "Privacy Box" would help seal the deal.
The primary attributes of this product would be:
- * It must demonstrate "Tasteful Expense" like a fine watch.
- * It must look good on an executive's desk.
- * It must block the sensors of any cell phone that is placed inside.
- * It must close with a smooth, audible click.
For extra points, you could easily design it to:
- * Restrict interaction between multiple cell phones in the same container, tho this isn't as critical as looking expensive.
- * Automatically trigger airplane mode (to limit battery drain.)
- * Recharge the phone(s).
Wish I had the capability to make something that looked expensive and tasteful. I think this would sell itself.
