When I consider modern technology, I am circumspect.
Humanity has come a long way in the last few hundred years, and I literally can’t wait to see what they think up in the future.
My favorite pieces of technology are easy and practical inventions. One of the best examples of this is the window air conditioner. A long time ago, when something new was made, only the rich and famous could afford to have the newest things, for luxuries were only for the wealthy. When the central air conditioner was first invented, I would imagine that only those rich had a central air conditioner. Even today, it is expensive to purchase a central air conditioner, and many people can’t afford 1 of those air conditioners. However, there are still ways for the less wealthy people to have an air conditioner. Window air conditioners are the way for that. You can purchase for yourself cheap window air conditioners for your house for much less than a central air conditioner, and you can still cool your whole house. I have a window air conditioner in our room, and I only paid $100 online for it. It is a great little thing. I figured that the window air conditioner was one of our newest inventions, but I was surprised to learn that the window air conditioner was thought up in the 1950s. Of course, window air conditioners are a lot smaller and more efficient today. Either way it is great to know that even our Grandparents might have had a window air conditioner in their homes. I am happy that someone thought of inventing the window air conditioner.
