I am a millennial with technology in my hand.
I wear cordless earphones,
can make a call with my watch.
I can see my mom and dad overseas,
while sitting in my dorm.
I can command a device to play music,
or change the channel,
using my vocal tract, producing a sound.
I see real robots which were once fiction,
and I don’t have to cook food,
’cause there is always an option of home delivery.
Is technology helping me?
Providing me options and alternatives.
Or making me a lazy bum,
a couch potato, not moving even an inch.
AI and robotics, they sound cool.
But are they beneficial or provoking ourselves to be in our cocoon.
I have been pondering over this topic,
now and then.
I love technology, it’s helpful and is a remark of human’s creativity.
But does that mean, our creativity is leading us to towards stagnation and lethargy?
Think about it!
