..well before inventions there exist something that makes us to invent which is the energy and the mind each and everyone of us possessed. so in any invention there is an effect to those around us, be it something useful or not.we as human beings we do create when we feel there need be.

I think inventions are just part of the human nature to better their lives.if well used, the positive aspects of inventions outways the negatives. I think the greatest invention is electricity, because electricity has opened up other inventions like internet, appliances, phones etc..And ofcourse as long as the human race continues to exist, there will always be new inventions to make life easier or more complicated for us.

I agree with the above post. Humans just naturally invent things. The creative side in all of us wants to create something with function.

We are, by evolution, inventors. If not for all the inventions we came up with we could not have had society the way it is. Not just objects, but concepts.

Humans did not invent the concept of war, but we have invented the concept of democracy, and of peace negotiations.

This has allowed us to build complex society, because if we don't have to worry about fighting among ourselves, we can concentrate on other things.

Necessity is the mother of invention due to needs in life, people started to invent methods to make lives easier. Inventors started long time ago when they invented the wheel. They realized that inventions minimize the effort that people put to have their works done.

Technological advancement stimulates human brains to create modern stuff in different fields like transportations, multimedia, medical inventions, communications and many other fields. All these inventions changed our lives and made it more comfortable and lavishness. On the other hand we notice that many inventions deteriorate the environment in the form of global warming and depletion of ozone layer.

I think using technology can be really useful to our lives, but using too much technology can make some bad things to us.If the future is too much of technology,it can contol our lives and making us as slaves.confused

Every invention was made with all good reasons to help our certain arising needs, not until recently that man discovered that on a long run ,some of this inventions have a disastrous effect on our environments and life styles. And now they are trying hard to repair that which is being destroyed.

every invention has two sides....both negative and positive..so it is hard to choose which is the most essential invention in the world..

I would say each new invention has its own pros and cons. Take for example the internet. While it makes knowledge sharing and social networking becomes easier, look at the negative impact that it causes. People who rather sit in front of their computers talking to their friends rather than meeting them in person, inaccurate and unreliable information compared to those days when you have libraries and so on. My point is, it all depends on how we look at it.

Easy! Antibiotics.

antibiotics save lives and help deter the spread of disease!

but with the use of antibiotics comes antibiotic resistance.--> when bacteria and viruses mutate to become "immune" to a certain antibacterial and antiviral drugs.

With new things being invented everyday, it is essential that we follow how technology evolves. I believe that with cloud technology computers as we know them will be obsolete pretty soon.
