The Practical Action charity is asking tech addicts to hang up their digital connectivity tomorrow for No Tech Day.
Switched on tech geeks are being asked to renounce their e-goods for 24 hours to raise awareness for technology-deprived people in developing countries.
Anyone wishing to take part can sign up at the site or nominate a tech addicted friend, colleague or family member.
Practical Action wants those who manage to survive the ordeal relatively unscathed and of sound mind to spread the word of their experience through social networking outlets - the day after, of course.
David Grimshaw, head of new technologies at Practical Action, explained why the charity organised No Tech Day.
"Tomorrow, some people will not have a choice about the technologies they use. They will not have access to the internet, mobile phone or even electricity and clean water unless we start working together in the world to address the multi-faceted problems of poverty," he said.
"I hope No Technology Day will help you reflect on the role of technology in your life, and what it might be like to be without that technology not just for today but for tomorrow."
