Most of have been so absorbed by a mobile device at some point that we've bumped into another person, or stumbled over something that could have been easily avoided. While those moments might have been embarrassing at the time, wait until you hear what some guy managed to do at Australia's Sydney Airport.

Keep in mind, there was no malice. He simply wasn't paying attention while he was walking.

It turns out, a man who had just deplaned in Sydney Airport was so captured by whatever was on his iPad screen, he accidentally walked through the security exit. The event was captured on camera and unnerved airport officials enough that they evacuated all passengers.

Apparently to the iPad zombie man, the exit passage he used to gain entry into the terminal was perfectly convenient. The thousands affected by his folly think differently.
