Evolution in technology has really changed the world as compared to the last three decades. There are so many remarkable inventions. These inventions not only made our life easier but they have become an integrated part of our basic needs. Interacting with one another has become convenient and efficient. There are some setbacks to it though. But these inventions had made us our world built around it.
GPS (Global Positioning System)
This system was developed by the US Department of defense to overcome limitations of age old navigation systems. This technology (GPS) identifies the geographical location of its receiver through the use of satellites in space. After the launching of this modernized GPS satellite system in 2005, it became commercially available for public use. Today we find GPS in mobile phones, tablets, laptops and many other electronic devices.
Initially, we had an option of the telephone for communication. We cannot link social networking to one single platform. Today, platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest etc. has taken social networking to a much higher level than we could have ever imagined. And this has made life much easier.
Are you tired of the irritating button sounds? Then there is a new innovation. Touchscreen. No noise, only fingers. Sure, the touchscreen is one of the most highly used inventions of the recent decade. Laptops, tablets Mobile, printers, desktops, education kiosks and many of all kind of electronic devices have touch screens now. This technology had forced the world’s biggest technology providers to give more attention to their products design.
Mobile Operating System
The two major mobile operating systems right now that dominates the world is Android and iOS. The entire world population is basically dependent on them. These operating systems reached to the peek where their predecessors such as Symbian, Blackberry OS etc. failed to do. It is like having the whole world with your fingertip. App Store comes with all kinds of applications ranging from morning alarm to good night prayer.
AbioCor Artificial Heart
This was first implemented to a patient in 2001, and this AbioCor artificial heart was free from any external wires or tubes to run it. Source of energy to run this heart comes from the battery that was charged through an energy transmission process. The previous version which was the original version was limited in terms of its operational use. But the second version had a life up to five years. This had made cases where certain patients who were expected to be dead in one or two months lived more than two years.
YouTube invention is evolutionary. Imagined everything captured in the video can be shared with your mass (subscribers), making the world your audience.
