Technology Begins With Something Not Modern

Modernization is usually associated with everything that is contemporary, from lifestyle to technology. Especially for technology, did you know that there are many objects around us that have experienced many improvements. It is also possible that in the future it will continue to experience updates such as the addition of features, changes in physical appearance, and so forth.

Technology is basically intended to simplify and make human life more comfortable. From this desire then humans try to realize it with basic concepts which then continue to be developed.

Toilet

Before we can enjoy the ‘toilet seat’ like now or even the Japanese version of the toliet with lots of buttons with various functions, once every time I wanted to throw away just anyone just choose a rather closed place. Civilization then made changes in the field of sanitation. Ancient toilets found in ancient Chinese and Roman heritage buildings with simple designs such as seats with holes. But because it is not perfect, the disposal process is not thought about so that the dirt accumulates and causes odors to disease.

Footwear

The various shoe brands that are loved by young people today, the origin is just a layer of animal skin wrapped around the soles of the feet using a rope from tree fibers in the Paleolithic era. Shoes entered their industrial era in the 18th century. This is based on the needs of British soldiers for footwear products.

Vision aids

Also known as glasses, which can be triggered after a magnifying glass or loop to see a micro-sized object. Then humans developed it into a portable vision aid. It is estimated that the first glasses were discovered in Italy in 1290, because of a writing in a classic work that mentions the use of optics to read lowercase letters over long distances.

Refrigerator

The first concept of a refrigerator was an ice house that was used as a food storage area, and it was developed until the 18th century. In the mid 1830s, a cooling system with a steam compressing system was created. However, the innovation was only commercialized for home products 80 years later, precisely in 1913.

Cable

Ever imagined what would happen if there were no wires in this world? How do we charge smartphones without cables? Yes, although sudha found technology that can charge batteries without cables, in general cables are still needed. Cable has actually been present since the mid-19th and 20th centuries, but no one knows for sure who discovered it.

In early 1880, Thomas Alva Edison built a company called the Edison Illuminating Company, which built an electricity distribution system for lighting. Copper material is used to conduct electricity, while to protect copper from weather, the material is wrapped with a protective material from rubber. From there the cable began to be known and used for various other modern devices. There are still many modern technologies that used to start from something as simple as a stationery (pen), paper, watches, drinking bottles, television and so forth.
