Terrifying Picture Shows How Humans Will Evolve – Tech Neck, Claws, And A Smaller Brain

It’s predicted that due to Humans’ reliance on technology, our posture will significantly change.

We currently live in a world transformed by technology and while it provides humans good benefits, it appears to also have some long-term consequences. Technology has become essential in our day-to-day lives and is used for everything from online shopping, checking social media accounts, gadgets control, and importantly remote jobs. 

As a major consequence of new technologies, recent research has predicted it could be VERY bad for humanity. 

ROBIN WORRALL

The research, titled “Mindy,” found that humans inhabiting the Earth 1000 years from now will have different physical characteristics, thanks to emerging new technologies. Toll-Free Forwarding, who published a report on the experiment states the constant use of smartphones, laptops and other technology will be why our bodies will change.  

Mindy is a human model created by researchers from Med Alert Help and the New York-Presbyterian Orch Spine Hospital.

The evolutionary changes that Humans could face include an Arched Back and Neck. The experts explained that the design and typical user habits of modern tech objects like smartphones and computer monitors have a significant impact on the way we sit and stand. They added: “Consistently adjusting our position to look down at our phone or up at our office screen, has been proven to strain parts of our body that determine our posture.”

Our elbows could be stuck at 90-degree angles.

The research stated: “Also known as ‘smartphone elbow,” this is caused by the typical positioning of the arm when holding and using smartphones – either for general use or holding up to our ears during phone calls.” Humans are also said will have a thicker skulls – there are growing concerns that radiofrequency radiation emitted from smartphones could cause serious health implications

A second eyelid.

Kasun Ratnayake of the University of Toledo says “Humans may develop a larger inner eyelid to protect against exposure to excessive light, or the lens of the eye may be evolutionarily developed such that it blocks incoming blue light but not other high wavelength lights like green, yellow or red. It’s insisted that the radical evolutionary development will very much limit the amount of harmful light the eyes are exposed to. 

To Mindy’s posture, the effect of technology on the neck has also given rise to a new condition named the ‘tech neck.’

Text Claw, the report explained: “A closer look at Mindy’s arm reveals two significant anatomical changes, directly caused by the use of one particular tech device – the smartphone. A recently coined condition, ‘text’ claw’ occurs after consistently gripping your smartphone, curling your fingers around into an unnatural position for long periods of time.”

With a thicker neck, hunched-over posture, and a smaller brain, you’ll agree that this glimpse into the future is horrifying and if the predictions are correct, they await mankind.

A spokesperson for Toll-Free Forwarding has, however, said that while technology is great for job creation, productivity, and learning skills, a body of evidence is continually uncovering the negative effects technology can have on human bodies. It’s added that researchers worked with a 3D designer to create the future human whose body changed due to the use of smartphones, laptops, and other techs.

They concluded: “Technology has revolutionized the way we do business. Whether it’s the instant access to infinite knowledge through a device in our pocket, or the ability for businesses to expand into new markets all over the world with a virtual phone number, the scope of technology’s impact is limitless, and this trend shows no sign of letting up.”
