This image shows this guy in a train simultaneously listening to music, texting on his cell and playing on his DS. Thanks to Kotaku for posting this funny image a while ago.
The purpose of the game is not an exact replication of driving distraction in the real world, but one designed to “give you a sense of how a distraction can decrease your ability to react quickly”.
Surely enough, I was concentrating more on the driving than the texting until I realize I have to text in order to complete the game. So be mindful about how good you are while texting and driving or gaming online. Hmm… I wonder if it’s possible to improve multitasking skills?
Here’s the link to gauge your distraction.
