      With technology advancing rapidly, we see newer and newer gadgets being released and sold in the market. Our obsession with these gadgets seem to have come to a point where it’s no longer a surprise if we aspire to get an upgraded version.

      What is it with the need to upgrade though? This documentary film tries to explore why we have this obsession for collecting and upgrading to all sorts of gadgetry.

      With poet Simon Armitage as presenter, this documentary takes jabs and pokes fun, while at the same time, it’s also a revelation on our human psyche. Armitage surmises that the desire to keep upgrading is like a desire for upgrading our humanity, to the point where chips inserted in our body, in order to cure life-long illnesses such as deafness, may not be farfetched.

      The documentary is quirky yet thought-provoking. And Armitage asserts that with all these gadgets, we could be robbed of our sense of nostalgia. The gadgets we now own don’t stay with us long enough for us to create memories with it. This is especially true with the teenagers of today, who jump from one gadget to the next.

      Watch and see if you agree with his points.

      Not that great, lots of contradiction and no real documentation qualities on a tired subject.

      I admire the woman living in the forest. I wish I could be as resourceful as she. I wonder who her friends are though. Do they just drop by unexpectedly? I suppose they would have to since she doesn't own a phone. It's a shame the presenter was freaked out by her lifestyle. I wish he spent more time asking her how she lives.
