Issue 6:2013. In the developed world, we live with something like an abundance of technology, and we often don’t notice the progress it brings. The reason is primarily that technological advances to most people are seen as refinements of something that already exists and that we generally are at a high level, with constant research and development, both commercially and at the universities. One model replaces another in a steady flow, and all the time more or better functions are added to our phones, computers, cars, hospital equipment, or companies’ production facilities. However, once in a while we see a leap in progress that makes us remember the time before and after a technological breakthrough.
