Technology plays a pivotal role in human evolution. It augments our abilities, it effects our physiology and the way we interact. In the recent years mobile communication technology has experienced a renaissance, which has changed every aspect of our lives. For many, mobile phones are the main means of communication – small brains that help with navigation, emails, phone calls and generally act as a connection medium.

Mobiles have taken over our lives but is it possible that they are taking over before we fully understand their impact? Is it possible that the creator doesn’t fully understand its creation?
