I suppose modern technology could be described as astounding, for we have come a long way in the last few hundred years.
And I literally can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
My favorite pieces of technology are easy in addition to practical inventions. One of the best examples of this is the window a/c. A long time ago, when something modern was invented, only the rich and powerful could afford to get it, as luxuries were only for the wealthy. When the central a/c was first invented, I would guess that only the rich had a central a/c, and actually even today, it isn’t cheap to purchase a central a/c, and so most poorer people can’t afford one of those a/cs. But saying this, there are still ways for the less wealthy people to have an a/c. Window a/cs are the solution. You can purchase all sorts of cheap window a/cs for your house for much less than a central a/c, and thereby you can still cool your whole house. Indeed I have a window a/c in my room, and I only paid $100 for it at the store. I am happy with it. I figured that the window a/c was a modern invention, but I was surprised to learn that the window a/c was developed in the 1950s. Of course, window a/cs in the modern day are much smaller and better. But it is nice to consider that even our recent elders could have had a window a/c in their places they lived. Either way in the summer I know I can be cool thanks to the fact that somebody thought of inventing a window a/c.
