Illustration Essay: Technology Leads To Laziness “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots” (Einstein). Today this world is being drowned in technology, cell phones, television, and types of transportation. Not only was Einstein correct but also, technology has taken humans even further; we have become lazy. There are countless examples to prove Einstein’s theory but, think of the obvious ones. When we come home we find our family most of the time lounging and “chilling” on the couch with an electronic device or watching TV. Instead of performing chores or something productive they insist on reading the latest gossip on a popular blog or social network and push aside the more important responsibilities. “I’ll do it later” or “One sec” is what is said most of time but all that comes to mind is laziness. “Wi-Fi” is the new trend of the twenty first century; wireless internet.

Instead we think we can all multi-task and perform these dangerous actions. We are too lazy to wait for the next stop light or pull over to answer the text or even make a phone call. “Stop the texts, stop the wrecks”. But that’s not good enough, why use my energy on driving when I can have someone do it for me with taxis, buses, even chauffeur’s. With new vehicles coming out the features are speechless. Automobile companies have equipped with built in wireless internet, which seems pointless. There’s also the automatic hands-free parallel park feature, why park yourself when the car can do it for you. The line, “Roll down the window” is soon going to be unrecognizable because in order for the windows to go down is all a tap of a button. No more keys for the ignition or turning the key, all push to start capabilities. When was the last…
