Do you control your smartphone or is it controlling you? The Human Robot Cycle illustrates the cycle or war you will experience with your smartphone usage. At Equilibrium, you are healthy, being able to use your smartphone at your whim and fancy. In the Machine-Like Stage you are starting to develop repetitive habits and mindless usage.
