Technology is one of the most influential things in our lives, from a simple fan, which can make warm days more comfortable, to a computer, which can calculate an expression in 3 days, which were to be done by humans would have taken 300 years. Most of these amazing things that made our lives easier are built upon “6 simple machines”, which are:-lever, wheel, and axle, pulley, inclined plane, wedge, and screw.

Revolution In Field Of Technology
We all know about the Industrial Revolution of 1756, which happened in the United Kingdom. Still, only a few of us know that there are three more industrial revolutions, the second one started in 1840 and continued till 1960 In the United States, and the third started in 1960 and continued till 2000 in the United States and Europe. The fourth Revolution started in the present era, mainly in the European Union and the Peoples Republic of China.
In the last decade, technology has grown a lot, from a computer which took an entire desktop, to a computer that we can be carried around wherever we want to and is about 100 times better in functioning.
In the last decade, the focus is also made on renewable energy, for example, if one were to buy a solar panel in 2010, it would have cost him/her about 1000-2000 USD, but now, the same solar panel would cost about 100-200 USD, even things like 5G have been made a reality, not publically for now as a lot of infrastructures is needed for the high-frequency rays to travel. This is just an overview of what has happened in the last decade.
