In this video that pasta sauce company Dolmio created called the “Look Up Experiment.” In it, kids from a few different families (ranging in age from 8 to 10 years old) are shown fully engrossed with their iPads.
Then, unbeknownst to them, their parents start making some serious changes around them to see if they notice.
At first it’s just a simple swap of a painting or two, until some strangers come in — and still the kids have no clue. Suddenly the Wi-Fi goes out and they are forced to look up.
And yes, see the strangers that suddenly “appeared” at their dinner table.
