I worry about the world I helped create', says Android founder


The co-founder of Android has said he is worried about the impact mobile phones are having on children.

Rich Miner, who helped build the Android operating system, said he feared for the “interrupt driven world I helped create" and the impact it will have on younger generations. 

"I worry about the smartphone centric interrupt driven world I helped created and how it is going to impact people who grew up thinking this is just how things are," he said.

It came in response to a photo posted on Twitter showing how a class of schoolchildren received hundreds of smartphone notifications during a class.
