Technology has always been a game-changer. In business, in healthcare, in retail, in communications, in relationships. It has improved our lives and in many cases saved our lives. And the advances keep on coming.
Sometimes the innovation is to cure what our new technology has wrought, such as the sedentary lifestyles of information workers. Turns out it's not just the Mountain Dew guzzling and the pizza intake-it's the actual sitting. In the Runner's World article "Sitting is the New Smoking," evidence suggests that even those who are fit are at risk if they sit at length for work or play. The fix? Maybe try a workstation treadmill/bicycle. Other new technology to enhance our lives includes wearable devices that monitor brain waves and warn us when we're getting too much sun, a program that adjusts the lighting in our devices and computers to help with sleep cycles, and a cloud-based learning platform to improve critical care for children around the world. See how technology might be saving your life.
