Google causing children to be ‘brain dead’ warns successful inventor.
The “Google generation” is in danger of losing its creativity, warns one of Great Britain’s most successful inventor, because they tend to rely on the Internet for just about everything, which is putting them in danger of becoming “brain dead.”
Trevor Baylis, 75, inventor of the wind-up radio, said kids today are losing creativity and practical skills because they are spending far too much time staring at a computer screen, Britain’s Daily Mail reports.
Because of that, Baylis says he fears that future generations of inventors are being lost as too few young people are able to make things with their hands. That said, Baylis believes children could re-learn vital practical skills at schools.
