Terrifying Model Shows The Abnormalities Future Human Beings Could Develop Due To Our Current Lifestyle

Today, wide changes have occurred in the lives of all people. Malnutrition, an unhealthy diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, drug abuse, stress, and so on are the manifestations of an unhealthy lifestyle that is now dominant in modern society Besides, the lives of citizens face new challenges. For instance, emerging new technologies within IT, such as the internet and virtual communication networks, lead our world to a major challenge that threatens the physical and mental health of individuals. The challenge is the overuse and misuse of technology.

A research project commissioned by TrollFreeForwarding warns us about the potential abnormalities that could form from the overuse of technology. Researchers collaborated with a 3D designer to make renderings of a “future human” that shows tech-related problems from daily technological use. Researchers named the 3D model “Mindy.”

To show the impact of technology on the human body, especially over a long period of time, the team studied scientific research and expert opinions on the topic, specifically the negative effects technology can have on the human body. The design in the image was based on the constant use of smartphones, laptops, and other forms of technology.

The researchers predict Mindy will have a hunched back in the future. This would be from the overuse of modern tech objects, affecting the way people sit and stand. Another visible feature of the 3D image is what the researchers call “text claw,” also called cubital tunnel syndrome (a nerve condition in the elbow that produces numbness in the fingers) caused by using the smartphone constantly. The posture in the 3D image, Mindy, also shows the effect of technology on the neck. “When you’re working on a computer or looking down at your phone, the muscles in the back of the neck have to contract to hold your head up.” The more you look down, the harder your muscles have to work to keep your head up.

The study predicts that future humans would have a thicker skull to protect the brain from radiation from smartphones and that humans would develop a second eyelid to protect the eyes from strain and too much blue light from screen exposure.
