Smombie (new glossary entry)

smombies-900x440Smombie, or smartphone zombie, noun: A person walking around unaware of his surroundings entirely absorbed in his smart-phone.

This seems to be a real problem in Germany where they invented the term. One town even put traffic signals in the sidewalks after several people were hurt and one was killed by a passing vehicle due to smartphone-induced oblivion.
