Re: best invention of the past century.
Woot first post
Internet for Sure and Robots.
The internet can connect sooo many people in the world. Right now we are communicating. The inernet has revolutionalized the way we work. Before we used to stress over calling people, sending them letters, going to the library but now we can conveniently find and research almost anything we can email anyone or IM anyone in an instant. We can even webcam and play games. We meet people. But with great technology come faults. Poeple can invade our privacy and they can stalk us doing under aged things. (i.e Pornography) So in the end the internet is still one of the best inventions.
Robotics has also amazed many people. Robotics will Change our world, they may cause more people to be unemployed and on the streets of our world. Robots can do many things we cannot, they can go on dangerous missions they can handle chemicals, they can do things far more efficient. In the future countless people will lose thier jobs to robots. Just think. Robots are as smart as we program them, so basically the ideas are endless. In the begining u may say hey robots are expensive. But in the long run companies could save thousands or millions. lets say a robot is 100 thousand dollars. THey could save thousands in around 1-2 years. THe robot can do things faster, they don't need to be paid either. They can work over night. A robot could quite possibly do the work or 4. Lets say each person makes 25000-50000 dollars a year. In 2 years you can save 100 thousand dollars double of what the robot is worth. So in the future the world will be changed, even now we have robots doing assembly line work at a car factory or any factory in the world. So think in the future we could have robots doing household choruse or anything we wanted.
Robots and the internet are different things but they make everyday life easier in different ways. so it is hard to chose one that is better.
