Best Electronic Inventions of the 2000s
Ten Major Electronic Inventions of The 2000s
1. I Phone (2007) The introduction of smart phones brought about the I Phone. The ability to use the internet and your phone hand and hand was a major breakthrough in the world of technological advancements. This device made a phone an all in one piece of equipment. Internet, e- mail, pictures, video recording and music all at your fingertips plus it's a cell phone that holds hundreds of games and other apps.
2. I Pod (2001) The Apple IPod introduced a new way to store and hear music that was unthinkable at the time. Instead of hauling around bulky CD's just download and store thousands of songs on one small device. This began what eventually became I Tunes because instead of CD's now you can download music directly to an I Pod and hear it through ear phones.
3. Segway (2001) The Segway is a natural balancing two wheeled human transporter that can travel between10-12 miles per hour. You shift your body forward to make the machine go forward and you can lean sideways with the Segway balancing. My first Segway memory was when then President George W, Bush tried to drive one and he wrecked it on camera.
4. Asimo Robot (2000) Honda's robot can dance, run, talk, play kick ball and even pour drinks for its owner. Asimo are initials for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility. The robot can turn off lights and open doors by turning the doorknobs. Also, Asimo can recognize up to ten faces and remember your actual names. Before long these robots are gonna be like the ones on the Will Smith movie called I Robot.
5. Car Backup Camera (2010) The backup camera shows on live footage everything behind your car virtually eliminating the need for rear view mirrors. When the car is in reverse the screen shows all the cars and people behind your vehicle. This device converts back to a GPS system when the car is in drive. A major auto innovation and in the future this technology is sure to expand.
6. USB Drive (2000) USB drives proved useful by allowing storage and transfer of computer information or pictures by putting it on a small flash drive. They have different storage capacities for different Drives. Having this drive really helps keep paperwork to a bare minimum.
7. Sony Playstation 3 (2006) The PS3 was a video game console equipped with a built in Blue Ray DVD Player, CD Player and advanced graphics. It also had the Playstation Network which allowed the console to stay internet connected at all times even with WI-FI.
8. BlueTooth Earpiece (2000) Blue Tooth allows people to talk on their cell phone with an ear piece or even through their car stereos. You can use this decide effectively when driving because it is totally hands free.
9. GPS Automobile (2000) The Global Positioning System for all vehicles allow you to get directions spoken to you step by step as you drive. You simply type in the address and it will show you a map and walk you to your destination.
10. DVD/TiVo (2000) Digital Video Recording allows recording of television and pausing and rewinding of live television as well. This device makes it easy to store programming and you never have to miss a show while your away.
