Network Detox: Connected Futures In Play

806

Published on

Network Detox (ND) comments on our connected lives, in play.

On www.network-detox.com (launched 10 June 2012 at XMediaLab Sydney), visitors can learn about products from the future that our team currently develops, for example our flagship product, Net Offf®.

Net Off is our powerful, quick-fix solution to the often painful symptoms of network withdrawal that may last for several days and can stand as a barrier to the treatment of abuse. Net Off eliminates the toxins accumulated in the body as a result of excessive Internet usage and comes in tablet form or a nasal spray-eye drops combo. A test batch of Net Off tablets was made available for participants of XMediaLab, for the very first time.

In addition, during this session, Network check-ups were conducted, as well as ND Qigong-like exercises mimicking the turning off of, well, everything.
