Aren’t we all Zombies nowadays ?

OK, Halloween is coming up and one or the other of us will turn into a Zombie for one or a few days.
But looking at this comic strip from "Reality Check" makes me think: aren’t we all Zombies nowadays, brain-less marionettes as victims of all the mobile and connected gadgets we carry with us each day ? Look at the people at the bus station, in restaurants, at the airport, at home during dinner, and you probably get what I mean.

Yesterday I have been reading an article in Geo about a camp in China where internet-addicted kids are jailed to return to a normal life thru drill and intentional boredom. Scary, sort of ! But seems to work for many to start learning making real friends, playing real games, focus on things that matter.
Found a similar article in The Telegraph: "Inside the Chinese boot camp treating Internet addiction"
