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. That is not the only thing that tend to happen as we also have the tendency of not noticing the engineering design process that created the technology that we have today, in which dedicated and competent inventors, engineers, and also, entrepreneurs put their best foot forward.
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. We want you to know as well that this is a kind of effect that has been seen and witnessed happening in the animal kingdom and in the technological advancement of the human species as well. This kind of trend can be spotted whenever there are two or more people who are not connected in any way come up with the same concept at the same time as well.
There are so many cases of this particular type of trend which happened in the distant past like the case of the invention of the telephone in which many believe it was Alexander Graham Bell who first designed and created it while many also consider the possibility of Antonio Meucci being the discoverer of it, with how things happened in the same year. If you are wondering why this kind of thing happened, well, that is due to the fact that there was a leap in learning and it happened across the board therefore, giving people breakthrough moments at the same time. With regards to why Alexander Graham Bell was named as the Father of the Telephone is because of the very reason that the patent application he submitted showed great and skilled 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. Following after the completion of the initial processes, the next thing to happen has something to do with the concept being drawn up in order for it be realized before presenting it to a commercial sector where the product can be manufactured as well as implemented.
