Breakthroughs in Science and Technology

Science and technology has brought us modern and high-tech devices that in the past seemed to be impossible to attain. We have reached a modern world where technology reigns and everything seems to be possible. Indeed, man’s intelligence has proven to be vast and powerful, that even the most mind-boggling problem could be solved and even the minutest of details could be discovered.

Latest Discoveries by Science and Technology

Science and Technology has given man so much convenience and luxury in life. In our modern world, gone are those days where we have to commute and do the exhausting routines of applying for jobs. With the progress the world has made with the Internet, anyone can apply for a job while sitting in the comfort of his own home, sipping coffe. Moreover, cellular phones have made communication easier for people on the go.

The following is a list of latest discoveries in Science and technology.

1. LINKX. Developed by Helma Van Rijn, this electronic toy helps autistic children develop their language skills. A full article of this new technology is found at http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/02/070227105227.htm.

2. Robots. Scientists have created robots ---- humanoid robots, bee robots, and the likes. If you have seen the movie "I, Robot", you may exactly picture out what I am thinking. When I saw the movie, I thought that it was really possible to have those kinds of robots in the future --- robots who could act and think like human beings. It is quite disconcerting, though, to think that that robots might, in the future, control humans.

Although it may seem to appear only in movies, the idea of robots have actually come into practical existence in our modern world. An article in ScienceDaily( http://www.sciencedaily.com/videos/2008/0707-the_future_of_robots.htm) reports about humanoid robots built by engineers. These robots can recognize objects by color by processing information from a camera mounted on the robots head.

3. Flying Cars. Scientists and inventors are not discounting the possibility of finally inventing a car that could fly like airplanes.

Modern inventions

Thanks, countrywomen. Studies trying to have robots do household chores for humans are actually being done. Scientists are also trying to figure out ways where they could make robots as human companions. This is according to an article I've read. Truly, it is amazing.
