New technologies are 'making lives easier'

First published: 10-06-2009

The range of new technologies at the disposal of people across the world is making interaction easier and offering a number of positives, despite negative press, it has been said.

Justin Cooke, the chairman of the British Interactive Media Association (BIMA), said that cutting-edge creations such as mobile phone watches and PDAs are stimulating brains across the world, with other interactive technology such as the Nintendo Wii appealing to a wide array of individuals.

He explained: "The other thing to look at is the fact that our lives are getting better and our general well being is improving [through] the use of [the] applications that are now available."

Mr Cooke suggested that good news about developments in the watch and electronics technology world may not be revealed by news sources as it does not make a good story, with the media preferring negative pieces as they attract more attention.

His comments follow those made by the University of Southern California which said the "constant bombardment" of new technology is contributing to the numbing of brains and can frequently outpace our neurons' processing capabilities.
