Feeling in control of your Tech

Posted by Create Automation on 7/18/2014

From the humble remote to the marvellous motion sensor of the Xbox, it’s clear to see that technology has come a long way.

Tech firms (latching on to our deep-rooted sense of neediness), shower us with control – centric gadgetry to put users (us) at the heart of the action. “Cyber psychology.”
