There is nothing wrong if you want to utilize the technology around you as much as you want as that is the purpose they are serving however, you have to be vigilant and careful in using them that you will not reach the point in which you are already taking them for granted as the only outcome for this is regret especially when they ceased to function already. We do not only have the tendency of taking for granted the technology around us, we also tend to notice the engineering design process behind it, something that dedicate engineers, entrepreneurs, and even inventors work for years just to bring the products that we are enjoying now.
We want you to know that there is rhizome effect that will happen if the learning curve will instinctively take the same path in unconnected and irrelevant parts of the world. This kind of effect has been witnessed in the animal kingdom and also, in the technological development of the human species. The trend such as this are said to be visible when there are two or more people who are coming from different parts of the world, and who are not connected with each other, come up with the same idea and concept at the same and exact time.
One of the best examples that we can provide regarding this matter is the creation of the very first telephone since, if we are going to read history books, the name Alexander Graham Bell will pop up as the one who first designed and created it but, many also think that Antonio Meucci was the first one to discover the telephone. One explanation that can be put regarding this matter at hand is how there is a leap in the learning across the board and many people were given the chance to grab such an opportunity. As for the reason why Alexander Graham Bell was the one named as the first discovered of the telephone is because the patent application he had showed skilled and expertly crafted engineering design.
One thing about the engineering design process that we want you to know about is that it actually starts by identifying the need for a product and then, this is followed by research regarding its application and possible benefits as well. If all the things that must be done first were completed, it is not right to proceed to the next step which is the drawing up of the concept so that it will be realized prior to it getting sent to a commercial sector and present it to them in which the product can get the chance of getting manufactured and also, implemented.
