19 Examples of Anti-Tech Sentiment

From Anti-Router Gadgets to Dytopian Future Fashion

— September 26, 2014 — Tech
There are a number of ways that people are expressing their anti-tech sentiment and this collection of examples brings light to a few of them. From fun stationary that puts digital life on the back burner to clothes that actively repel cell, WiFi, GPS and RFID signals, anti-tech sentiment ranges in quite a few creative ways.

As digital life and wearable devices increase in modern society, so too will anti-tech sentiment. Part nostalgia, part conspiracy concerns, part fear of what the future holds, these particular creations address different issues that circle the rapid growth of this industry. Another element of anti-tech sentiment is moving away from anything too popular. The cool kids don't want to be associated with what everyone else is doing and love advertising that face.
