Technology in recent years has advanced very quickly. I remember just a few years ago using an Apple Computer where you had to type in commands for the computer to do anything. It also had very flimsy disks to run program, which could easily be damaged. Now we have computers that will almost run themselves. You no longer have to type in commands; you can either click on icons with your mouse or choose options from a menu.
I believe technology is the fastest growing and advancing thing in our economy today. Almost everything is based on computers or some other form of technology to run it. Computers are constantly being updated…a computer system can be out of date in a matter of months. Its not only computer though. Things like weapons technology and mobile communications i.e. cell phones, pagers, and hand-held computers (Palm Pilots).
I have found many different types of technological advances. One that I found is called the OICW. Which stands for Objective Individual Combat Weapon. It is a new weapon that the government hopes to implement by the year 2006, which isn’t too far off. This weapon will allow you to see and shoot around corners with out exposing yourself at all. It works by having a camera implemented into the scope of the gun. Then you have a little screen that comes down off of the helmet and fits right over your eye allowing you to see where the gun is pointed and what it is looking at.
Technology will continue to grow every day, every month and every year. Soon the technology we have now will be considered antiques and no longer be used anywhere. Some think that eventually they will hit a point where they can’t progress any further…but I think as long is there is technology we will continue to improve it.
