Scientists have told how real such a scenario is future for mankind.
Human evolution is inevitable and scientists continually wonder how people's lives and our appearance will change over time. A new study suggests that our future prospects are very depressing, writes Futurism.
Recently, the Daily Mail published an article “What people might look like in the year 3000”, which subsequently went viral. The spectacle is still. The study suggests that in 80 years, smartphones and other gadgets will change us so much that we will be quite like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings. Hunchbacks with clawed hands, second eyelids, thick skulls and tiny brains – that's the future for humanity the study depicts.

The creators of “Mindy”, as they called the model of the man of the future, assure that before starting 3D modeling, they consulted with experts and researchers.
It turns out that our gadgets, which we use a significant part of the day, alas, will affect our development and appearance very depressingly. As evidence, the creators of “Mindy” cite comments from experts in the field of human spine development and other scientists.
However, is it really so ? Scientists conducted their own investigation to understand how real such a “promising” future is for a person. It turned out that the study itself was published last year on the site TollFreeForwarding.com, which sells virtual phone numbers. So-so reliable source, isn't it?
But that's not all, the researchers studied the experts whose authoritative opinion is mentioned in the article, and came to the conclusion that an expert in the development of the human spine, in fact, is “an expert on well-being and development” at a site selling massage lotion.
After analyzing all the arguments presented in the publication, the researchers concluded that this material, suggesting that in 80 years you and I will become clawed hunchbacks with a small brain, is untrue and has little to do with the truth. The article was probably written as seo spam to get more traffic.
