A World Without Smartphones Apparently Means The Return Of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em RobotsBy: Zach Walton - July 12, 2013
I absolutely adore my smartphone. It seems that many of you do too. In fact, I find it hard to imagine a world without smartphones despite having lived most of my life without one. That’s how powerful of an impression the technology leaves on you. So, what would happen then if smartphones were never invented?
Qualcomm, the company that makes most of the CPUs powering your smartphones, released a video Thursday that reveals an alternate reality where smartphones never existed. It’s a somewhat bleak future, but hey, at least it means we get Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots back.
Does anybody want to live in this mobile-less world for at least a day? I mean, it looks like it would be kind of fun for at least a little bit. I’m especially a fan of Tweets just being tiny blue birds falling from the heavens.
In the end, however, we can be thankful that smartphones have made our lives a lot less interesting, and therefore safer as a result.[h/t: DroidLife]
