Hi There, I just discovered this community and i think you might be my people!
Recently, I went alone, without technology (OK - i had a GPS phone for emergencies) for a 6-day hike - and it completely reinvigorated me, completely reset my mindset. So I started to look into the link between spending time in nature and health and the science is starting to build a strong case. My hypothesis is that when we have an active connection with nature, we make better decisions about how we interact with technology and how we spend our time.
I’d long held the view that technology was designed to remove us from nature - and for our next phase of human growth, that it must be designed to bring us closer to our nature.
Other than improvements to technology design principles, what practical technologies do you know of that might create the environment of nature without our workplaces or homes - I’m thinking things like ultrasonic essential oil defusers as an example. Are there any other innovations in this space?
