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.
It has been said that there is a shooting effect in place if a learning curve happens to be spontaneously taking the same route in parts of the world that are not connected with each other. It has been suggested as well that this particular type of effect has already been see on the side of the animal kingdom and on the part of the technological development for human species. 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.
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. It seems that there was actually a leap in learning which happened across the board, giving many people a breakthrough moment at the same time. The reason behind why Alexander Graham Bell stood at the top is due to the fact that his patent application showed great engineering design.
When it comes to engineering design process, there are so many things that you have to know about it such as the fact that this process begins by identifying the need for a products which will then be followed by research in terms of its application and also, potential benefits. 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.
