Technologies we don’t need…and that could destroy life on earth

Welcome to #CrazyTech, a list of some of the newest idiotic, dangerous, delusional and just plain crazy technologies. We are approaching the list with a light-hearted spirit of ridicule and contempt – but in reality, we find the thought of most of these technologies quite terrifying. Don’t get us wrong – we’re not saying new technologies are bad. We’re saying they should be safe, effective and meet genuine public need – not be driven by corporations to maximise profit. The research and development of new technologies should be open to public debate and the entire life cycle of the technology considered – not just the use. With crazy new technologies constantly emerging, we can’t spot them all. So we’d love your help. You can use #crazytech on twitter, and email us with examples of the latest crazy technology so we can add them to our list.
