the gas flows through a series of 3D-printed pneumatic chambers that link the octobot's eight arms; their flexing propels it through water.

But everybody, everywhere, always assumes that you're guilty.
Have the courage to speak for yourself. Everyone here wants you to do that.
"Please folks -- this cell phone case is not a cool product or a good idea. A police officer's job is hard enough, without having to make a split second decision in the dark of night when someone decides without thinking to pull this out while stopped for a motor vehicle violation..."
And further: do not make it so that to unlock the phone, you have to activate its voice recognition and then scream into it, "I'm gonna GIT you mothahfuckah!"
but they are what they are
No they're not.
Or, you know, you could just not text while driving. That might be a cheaper and easier way of avoiding fines.
Your "you know" phrasing is rather condescending; if intended, then (insert expletive). If not, please pardon my misinterpretation and read on.
I was offering this as a way to protect the privacy of one's phone even if you weren't texting... I don't want people crawling over the contents of my phone, whether I was texting before that or not.
Past that: I intend to text while driving. I'm good at it. I know when to do it and when not to. I began texting in 2004 and now have 12 years of accident-free driving supporting the idea that I'm doing pretty well at knowing my limits.
Past that: people are going to text while driving, whether I do or not and whether they are good at doing so or not. I'll advise my kids not to because they're very inexperienced; that might slightly reduce the amount they do it, or it might not. When they get to be good drivers, I won't hassle them about it because it will be their choice and their consequences, and they might even be good at it.
When I hear about someone getting killed because they or someone else texted, I'll be sad. Just like I'm sad when I hear someone died because they drove faster than they were really capable. And neither will shock me, and neither will prompt me to go tell my neighbors not to drive fast or to text while driving. Because that would make me an overbearing busybody that people dislike, AND it won't change their choices.
"if you're doing nothing wrong you've got nothing to hide"
Response attributed to Snowden: "Saying you don't care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is like saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say."
