Ajit Johnson, a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, has designed a set of posters entitled #This_Generation, capturing how tech-dependent we've all become.

Johnson told BuzzFeed: "#This_Generation is a series of minimal posters made to illustrate how technology has invaded our lives in a humorous manner."

Is this mainly how you date today?
