Walter Benjamin first coined the phrase “technological sensory training” when he argued that technology had

subject(ed) the human sensorium to a complex kind of training (and that) during long periods of history, the mode of human sense perception changes with humanities entire mode of existence. The manner in which human sense perception is organised, the medium in which it is accomplished, is determined not only by nature but by historical circumstances as well.

(Benjamin 1973: 216)
