As we move further and further in time, we are constantly being blown away by the inventions that fellow human beings create. The world we live in now is almost alien-like compared to how things were just one-hundred years ago. If you would have told someone in the early 1900s that, in around one-hundred years’ time, the majority of people in the world would have a small and powerful supercomputer at their fingertips, they’d think you were crazy. But, alas, here we are: living in an age of constant technology breakthroughs.
Tech has been used for pretty much everything in life at this stage – whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing is up for debate!
