Technology has been making us sick - without us even realizing.
The smartphone is an amazing piece of technology. However, when we miniaturized computers and put them in our pocket, we didn’t plan for the smartphone to become the center of our lives. Smartphones realistically don’t address the needs of users in the home. A number of side effects result from the smartphone being placed in the center of a context it was never designed for - including distraction, decreased social interaction, decreased creativity, increased cognitive load and low accessibility.
