    Early automobiles
    In the early 1900s automobiles could barely reach a speed over 30 mph as their engines were limited in power and the materials used to make the cars were simply to heavy and clumsy. They were also not meant for speed, these cars were primarily used by the rich and wealthy due to the cars being extremely costly and only those with the money to spend could afford them. These early cars were also extremely bad on the environment, they pumped out a lot of harmful gases aswell as waste fuel.

  • First Flight

    First Flight
    The Wright brothers were the first to come up with the design of the three axis control which allows the pilot to constantly maintain control of the plane. This design is still being applied to every aircraft to date. However this plane relied on the wind order for it to fly, it had no engine of any description, but it was crafted and shaped in a way so that the wind that passed through the wings and the rudders controlled by the pilot would allow for turning and smooth landings.
  • Early televisions

    Early televisions
    Televisions were first sold commercially from 1928 to 1934. The first television which was first produced in Germany, then France and Britain, and finally America in the next 2 years, was called the Braid “Televisor”, it only had a 3 inch sized screen (8 cm), it cost $125 (£74.33). These televisions also only were displayed through black and white colouring as the filming technology used to record the programmes was not developed enough to allow for the capture of colour in the image.
  • Full scale television broadcasting

    Full scale television broadcasting
    Televisions began broadcasting across the country in 1947, this was the first time that the entire country had gotten to witness a program aired at the same time around the world. Whereas nowadays we have thousands being broadcastes around the country at any given time.
  • Early cinemas

    Early cinemas
    Cinemas in the early 1950’s had adopted a huge screen, air conditioning the seats in the room could also be repositioned by pivoting forth and back. However the screen was still relatively bad quality it made up for it with its size. The olden cinemas also used to show their movies through a frame by frame projector which required a film strip of the movie to then project each strip in rapid concession to give the allusion that the strip makes up a flowing movie.

    Early gaming
    Gaming in the early 1980s involved a clunky system that could only handle a certain amount of coding and could only run a certain amount of colours at any given time. These games included classics such as Pac man which was an extremely simply game, 2d and only a few events that required coding, the rest was just colour. Aother example is pong, again, not too much coding, very little coding and so on. The machines that ran these games were large and deffective, often breaking and malfunctioning.
  • IMAX Cinemas

    IMAX Cinemas
    IMAX theatres are the next movie theatre to advance cinemas in technology, they introduced showing films in wide frame motion pictures, it even won an award in 1996 for an Oscar in Scientific and Technology Achievement. The theatre Compared to the 1950’s version, has improved drastically, both in screen resolution, seat comfort, room size, hygiene and so on. In the previous versions of Cinemas they were shown through a projector that displayed each individually captured scene on the screen ahe
  • Digital mobile phone networks

    Digital mobile phone networks
    In the 1990s, the 'second generation' mobile phone systems emerged. Two systems competed for supremacy in the global market: the European developed GSM standard and the U.S. developed CDMA standard. These differed from the previous generation by using digital instead of analog transmission, and also fast out-of-band phone-to-network signaling.

    sent throughout the car, the reaction is almost instant, and whereas before this inention the driver would hit their head on the steering wheel causing severe head damage, the bag now catches and cushions the drivers head and prevents any head trauma. Another safety aspect of modern day viehcles is the material the car is made out of, the safety cage around the bade (this being the doors hood and trunk) are made from steel this is to ensure that the passangers are safe from colisions.
  • Current cars

    Current cars
    cars nowadays are much faster, more fule efficient, less harmful to the enironment and look a lot more slick. One improvement when it comes to new cars over old, is that where as the olden cars allowed for speeds of 30 mph with cars such as the lamborghini adventurer the user can travel up to 260 mph +. Another improvement is the new fuel types we use, such as diesel which damages the environment less, we also have cars that run purely on electricity leaving next to no bad effect.

    Another improvement current automobiles have achieved is the metals used to lessen the weight of the viechcle therefore maintaining the sturdyness of the car's chasis but allowing for less fuel compensation and furthering the potential speed for the viechle. Another improvment that current cars have reached is the use of on board assistant, for example the built in scanners on the front and back of the cars that assist the driver when parking by alerting them if they are about to hit something.

    Current televisions part 2
    was limited to 2D display, nowadays televisions have the ability to emerse the user in a 3D display as the television comes with glasses and the display produces a 3D display should the user want to view certain compatible channels in 3D. Another advancement in televisions is the slimness and size of them. There are some television out nowadays that span entire walles whilst being as thin as paper, this is due to the innards of the tv being so advanced that the parts have been shortened allowing

    for thin Televisions whilst still producing programmesi n hd or blue ray quality as the parts are still as advanced but just more campact. Another advancement in televisions is the addition of voice command, the user now ahs the ability to speak certain commands to certain televisions and the tv shall follow out that order if it is programmed to. This has allowed for users to not even need their remote controls anymore.

    Another advancement televisions have made is the use of their sound, there have been certain additions created for televisions to enhance the experience of watching television from your home , one of these additions is called surround sound, these are speakers that the user places around the room which houses their television so that when they turn on their television again, they will not only hear sound coming from their tv but from all around them, like that of a cinema, only from their home.

    Current gaming
    Where as early gaming was limited to 2d and simple graphics, nowadays hardware has improved so drastically that some games look almost as crisp and cutting edge to fool someone into thinking it was real life and not a game. The hardware used in consoles has improved and at the same time been shortened and compacted to allow for smaller gaming systems playable at home. These consoles have also a longer life span due to the fans installled which keeps the components inside clean and cool.

    Cars are no longer built by people, the original design of the vehicle will still be drawn by ahuman, however this is also now done through computers and blueprint software, but once the car's design is made then machines are programmed to construct the cars, this is done through each machine having a certain task to accomplish and the car's base being on an assmbly line, with the machines lined up ready for the car, once the car base has rached a machine, the machine will add its part whereas

    before workers would be required to fit on each part to a car and build it themselves, this would take significantly longer than having a machine perform the task as people would require breaks and would eventually get tired from the work, the machines can continue fitting the pieces and performing their tasks without that disadvantaage.
  • Car safety Part 1

    Car safety Part 1
    Since the early 1900s where cars relied purely on safe driving and slow speeds to remain safe while at the wheel, nowadays that are several precautions to ensure the driver is safe and sound when involved in a crash or collision, the first of which is the seat belt, this strap around your chest will tighten and keep you in the seat if you are suddenly jolted forward. Another precaution is the airbab inside the steering wheel, this air bag erupts if the car collides with anything and vibrations
