Face it, you’re probably an addict. A slave to your tech. Hopelessly glued to your screen from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to bed.

You’ve been systematically programmed by an army of expert technology companies, who are making vast profits from the time you spend on their products. And it is taking a huge toll on your mental and physical wellbeing. But it’s time to wake up and regain your humanity.

Guiding you through the matrix of tech addiction is host Dr Kim Le, a former gaming addict turned psychiatrist. Kim will pull back the curtain to reveal how and why these companies want you addicted to their products, as well as arming you with the knowledge and techniques to take back control.

Dr Kim Le trapped in a phone

“As a gamer, I have always been fascinated with virtual worlds. This fascination led me on a journey to becoming a psychiatrist. As a psychiatrist working on the front line, I see the psychological effects of internet technology on the brain everyday. The Internet is designed to be engaging, which can be fun for many, but also create misery for everyday families. It was a privilege to be part of this production with cutting-edge special effects, world-class experts and [that it was] filmed during the pandemic is a massive achievement.” – Dr Kim Le

Through a series of one-on-one interactive consultations Kim will assess your level of dependence and tell you whether you control your technology or if your technology controls you!

Are You Addicted to Technology? is a world-first interactive experience that will take you on a journey of self discovery, asking you to confront one of the most pressing issues affecting every one of us. As Dr Kim Le guides you through this personalised investigation, you’ll question all you thought you knew about your own behaviour and relationship with technology.
