A technology company has developed smart phone apps that force users to obey ‘hidden’ commands.
Games and apps already make users check for updates and buy in-app ‘skills’ but HypnoTec has taken the principle a stage further.
The FeelGood app produces a feeling of euphoria. Scientists say it’s not dissimilar to the effect of marijuana although without the chemical infusions and, so far, it’s totally legal.
The FeelBad Bug app does the opposite. Send a specific link to someone you don’t like and it installs a virus on their phone causing them to have FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) and low self-esteem.
The company said they could develop Exercise and Diet apps which can make people live a healthier life but say there’s no demand for them.
Payment for the apps is through the company’s PayMe app which makes users pay a certain amount to the company each month.
HypnoTec is working with Big Brand companies to produce apps that encourage users to buy products.
The company says it is also in negotiation with political parties and expects to have a Politico App ready well before any government can propose banning it.
