Technology has definitely made life easier for people by making communication simpler and giving people ways to capture and share memories conveniently. But too much fascination with gadgets has also led to a situation where people miss out on important experiences and events of life.

In a footage going viral on social media, a group of tourists can be seen glued to their phone while taking a gondola ride in the city of Venice. A ride on the boat through the spectacular tourist destination is considered one of the major attractions in Venice, but the people are clearly missing out on the view.

The footage is just one of several instances where technology is making people miss the beauty of the real world. Several studies have also documented how excessive use of gadgets can affect public health in different ways including sleep deprivation.
