CTV New did an interesting test to discover whether “wexting”-walking and texting-can be achieved optimally at the same time. Now you’d assume that people who can walk and text are pretty co-ordinated, get a lot done on their social media, and are highly efficient.
This clip from CTV Vancouver suggests otherwise-in a completely unscientific experiment, people asked to walk and text at the same time actually took twice the time to reach their destination turning a 10 minute walk into a 20 minute walk. And reading not texting? That was even longer, turning that 10 minute walk into a 25 minute walk.
Here’s the CTV News trailer for the item featuring reporter St. John Alexander below.
