TLDR:

Germantown startup Brick has developed a physical device that pairs with a smartphone to temporarily block distracting applications. Co-founders TJ Driver and Zach Nasgowitz created the Brick device after struggling with their own phone usage. The device allows users to select which apps they want blocked, and once activated, the apps remain blocked until the user returns to the physical device. Since launching in September, around 2,000 Brick devices have been sold. The startup’s immediate goals are to find a scalable manufacturing method and expand their marketing efforts.
