Purpose of WoWe™ System
The WoWe™ lockable cell phone system allows you to unplug yourself from your cell phone (just for a while) so that you can focus on the moment.
The purpose of this innovative product, the brainchild of Dr Marlena Kruger, of MindUnique Education Pty (Ltd) and the TechnoLifeWise Foundation (http://www.technolifewise.org), is to encourage the management of technology and social media to find techno-life balance and Master TechnoLife Wellness™.
The goal is to make you critically aware of the negative impact of not being focused enough on real-life experiences and thereby not allowing you to live in the present.
Whether you are at home, school, university, work or even an event, the branded and lockable cell phone pouch can be closed and opened as required.
A World of Wellness WoWe™ system is a valuable tool in the world of discoveries where humans are replaced with robots, gadgets, and other widgets to perform everyday repetitive tasks.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) 2018 <insert link to https://www.weforum.org/> has become aware of these emerging realities and in response challenged tech companies to take more responsibility for the significant side effects technology has on the quality and values of human lives.
However, if we can ensure that we keep a good balance and focus on integrated and neuro-synergetic development of humans’ minds, bodies, and spirits so that they can be creative and innovative, we will not be replaced by robots.
The WoWe™ lockable cell phone system is a wonderful system that allows people to focus on the important real-life experiences versus superficial relationships in the virtual world.
Misuse of technology
The misuse of technology and social media has overall a negative impact on the wellness (psychologically, physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively) of people of all ages. Let us rather learn from the world’s mistakes and start taking pro-active steps to prevent the further deterioration of human values and wellness.
The WoWe™ lockable cell phone system provides an answer to assist people in balancing their technology usage. The acceptance and implementation may be challenging in the beginning but based on research from across the world, it promises to have a positive impact!
The WoWe™ has various applications in different contexts such as major events, schools, exams, and high-priority meetings at work. It can also be used at home where quality and real-life interactions and engagement with family members are important.
The pilot research project to launch the WoWe™ system is envisaged to take place at the beginning of the second semester at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).

The WoWe™ system offers a new and exciting opportunity for artists to prevent their shows being photographed and distributed, and for educators and employers to assist their interest groups in managing and balancing technology usage even limiting it for specific purposes.
