Science | 2020-12-13 20:30:54.0 | By Sunita Pathak

Today's world completely relies on technology. Either it's your office, your school, your business, or even your own house, it's all full of technologies and inventions. No matter where we go or where we live, the world is full of technical machinery. But do you think it is good to have the technologies all around us?

Like everything out there, the invention of technologies also has both boon and a ban. Well, you might wonder what could be the disadvantage of having technologies as it has made our life so much easier but on everything, the disadvantages are in pursuit of advantages.

People thrive and employ all their energies on being independent, but no one has ever thought of how these unstoppable inventions in technologies are conquering over all our independence. These inventions are making us lethargic and especially these are forcing us to completely rely on them. For example, people nowadays can't even solve simple mathematics without using a calculator. Addicted to cell phones, people today can't live a single day without their phones.

But, it depends on people how much they want to get addicted to technology. Besides these, there are a plethora of reasons why people are taking these technologies for granted. The invention of these technologies is one of the main reasons why the world is skyrocketing towards development.

Along with saving an enormous amount of time, these technologies offer the ease of instant outputs. For example, using automobiles to travel miles away in a shorter time, operating business relying on the massive software capable of accurate outputs, ordering things online, and getting it the other day.

The world has flipped from the stone age to the modern age to a vast extent. But, only a handful of people are aware of the history of this massive change. People are extremely busy with their work and professional life that they don't have time for digging back into history and the inventors. While some people rely on these technologies but don't bother to explore to whom the credits of these inventions should go.

But, to the ones who are curious and admire these inventions, we have gotten the list of inventors who introduced this world to technology. We have oftentimes heard of Thomas Edison for inventing light bulbs and electricity, Issac Newton for introducing Newton's laws of motions, Alexander Graham Bell for inventing the telephone, Steve Jobs for inventing the Apple products, etc. But, these true heroes below do deserve equal fame and respect for their incredible contribution towards this technological world.
