30 Inspiring Technology Quotes

The 21st century is a century that will be defined by the technological revolution. No single century will see innovation to this magnitude. Technology has rather progressed at a snail’s pace in the entirety of human history, until the industrial revolution that began in the 18th century which sped up innovation and ushered in a new era for prosperity. With the discovery of electricity, mankind started rapid development and then came the big industries and factories, and now with the advent of the internet, almost every single part of human habitat is connected via the technology of the internet.

As we move further into the 21st century, innovation and discoveries in medical science and technology will mean that people will be able to live longer and more prosperous lives with the help of technology. It was hard to imagine what the internet will become during the 1970s and 1980s when it started. Now as we prepare to welcome 5G into our lives, technological revolution will engulf the entirety of the planet with the help of internet of things (IOT) devices. The world is becoming a smaller place thanks to the advancement of our technologies, and pretty soon we will be able to colonize other planets and mine for precious resources on distant galaxies.
