It’s pretty sentimental to talk about old technology that we remember from our childhood. Whether it is that first Sega genesis you got on your 8th birthday or the first house alarm system that you would always trigger accidentally in your old house, it just seems like those days are ages ago. And maybe they are, but what makes technology so special in our hearts? Perhaps it is the fact that as we mature and advance as a species, technology is right there with us, aiding us and making sure that we progress with the best and newest gear available.
This leads us to be able to save more peoples lives with better medical equipment, listen to our favorite songs with some pretty high definition audio systems, or even fly a drone with a camera in it to get a birds eye view of the landscape. We live in a society where convenience is a must and technology only assists in that spectacle that we seek so often. Just take a look at your daily routine for example. What used to take a long time in shaving down that beard, now takes five minutes with the use of these high tech beard trimmers. Same can be said for women and their lady razors or epilators as they call them.
Life is much easier and perhaps more bearable now, and that is directly the result of technological advancements. It’s even more fun now too with all these incredible innovations coming out such as the android powered TV by Xiaomi. There is no doubt that we are still far away from developing truly life changing technology, but we are definitely on the right path and while it may take time, we have already made significant advances when you just look back 30 years. Who knew the internet would take off as much as it did and become the information haven that it is today? You would not be reading this article had it not been for these advances.
If we could back in time and tell ourselves that we would be able to fly actual hover boards, like Back To The Future predicted back in the 1980s, you would think that we are crazy. But we are actually there and these things do exist, while they are still not as cool as the one in the movie. But that’s the thing, one day and pretty soon they will be. So the next time that you are using one or in the presence of one of these major technological wonders, take a step back and appreciate it for what it is. Think about how long it took to develop such a progressed culture, and be excited for what the future holds!
