Hap-tech is basically the use of technology to develop an individual’s positive mind, soul and body. Happiness is important because it constitutes a final goal for human beings. Happiness is something to which one aspires and its search motivates human action. An example of this is that a resolution of the United Nations of 2012 states that “the pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human objective because it constitutes a final goal for human beings.
Technology is pertinent while being used for happiness, since it is one of the large-scale goals of humanity. What is happiness: being with your friends & family, watching your favorite movie, eating your favorite meal, playing your favorite sport, reading a book, being with nature…? Actually, it differs among people. People have different ways to get their brain knocked on to the positive side of life, just something that makes you think good about something in your life.
When you bring the science of technology and happiness together, the result is hap-tech. Technology for good can have a large variety of efficient functions. This makes it ideal to guide people towards the journey of happiness through many different ways. The ease of using technology also contributes to its use. Examples of hap-tech are apps, websites, gadgets, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and more!
