It seems like every day there’s a new invention that’s designed to make our lives easier, and all of it is on the cutting edge of science and tech. All these bells and whistles preoccupy our consciousness so much, that we forget about the simple things that we take for granted that were once technological innovations of their time.
Think about it. Stuff like beer, socks, toilets, etc.. must have been invented at some point. And when they were, I bet they were ‘ooh’d’ and ‘aaah’d’ over as much as the tech we have now.
Especially because some of those things are centuries if not millennia old.
