    Prehistoric Age Devices

    For the Prehistoric Age, we have already dealt with this in our previous grade topics. We learned that it includes the use of nature and is more of a one-way communication. Prehistoric humans were experts in creating a variety of tool types, in selecting appropriate materials for each device and many more.

    Cave Art

    Cave Art
    The paintings and engravings found in European caves and shelters dating back to the Ice Age. Most cave art consists of paintings made with either red (made with iron oxides) or black ( made from manganese dioxide and charcoal) pigment.

    Large Quartzite Biface

    Large Quartzite Biface
    This tool is called a biface because it has been flaked on both faces of the rock. It is made from quartzite rock, which is hard and durable. This tool was found at the Charlie Lake Cave site and is about 10,500 years old. This type of tool was probably used for chopping or butchering.

    Smoke Signaling

    Smoke Signaling
    A form of long-distance communication that is used to transmit news, signal danger or gather people to a common area. The location of the signal fire itself had meaning:halfway up a hill meant “all is well.” A signal fire from the top of the hill indicated danger.

    Industrial Age Devices

    The group’s insights about the industrial age devices is that it includes the use of electrically-powered devices and some were in a two-way communication. We came to understand that the use of these devices during this age are different compared from the first period.
  • Electric Telegraph

    Electric Telegraph
    Electric Telegraph uses electric signals to send communication via radio or line and patents the electric telegraph. It had a separate wire for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet and its range was only between two rooms of a person’s home.

  • Typographer

    Typographer
    The typographer was invented by William Austin Burt. During those days,this was the most important device used by editors in newspapers. The typographer helped Industrial Revolution by providing fast information from the reporters to the editors, which then later published the information to the citizens.

  • Telephone

    Telephone
    This device allowed people to communicate with other people living in a farther distance. This made communication much easier between businessmen during the Industrial Revolution. Not only for businessmen, but also for people who wants to communicate to their acquaintances that does not live in the same town as them. REFERENCE:

    Hollerith Census Machine – Tabulating Machine
    The Census Machine read special punch cards, which encompassed information whose encoding was based on the position of holes in the card. The unit on the left is an accumulator while on the right is a card sorter.

    Electronic Age Devices

    During this period, we already had the knowledge from our elementary history classes that it composes the use of electrical devices and most of it are for two-way communication. With the use of electrics, these devices are way more convenient than the devices in the first 2 periods. These are also more advanced and forward-thinking when it comes to providing, and getting information. As students born in the Generation Z, we find it very accessible in doing our school works.
  • Electron Microscope

    Electron Microscope
    An electron microscope is a microscope that uses a beam of accelerated electrons as a source of illumination. The first prototype electron microscope, capable of four-hundred-power magnification, was developed in 1931.The apparatus was the first practical demonstration of the principles of electron microscopy.

  • Transistor Radio

    Transistor Radio
    A transistor radio is a small portable radio receiver that uses transistor-based circuitry. Following their development in 1954, made possible by the invention of the transistor in 1947, they became the most popular electronic communication device in history, with billions manufactured during the 1960s and 1970s.

  • Integrated Circuit

    Integrated Circuit
    An integrated circuit or monolithic integrated circuit (also referred to as an IC, a chip, or a microchip) is a set of electronic circuits on one small flat piece (or "chip") of semiconductor material, normally silicon. Integrated circuits were made practical by mid-20th-century technology advancements in semiconductor device fabrication.

  • LCD

    LCD
    A liquid-crystal display(LCD) is a flat-panel display or other electronically modulated optical device that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals. Liquid crystals do not emit light directly, but uses a backlight or reflector to produce images in color or monochrome.

  • Color Television

    Color Television
    This includes information on the color of the picture, so the video image can be displayed in color on the television set. It is an improvement on the earliest television technology, monochrome or black and white television, in which the image is in shades of gray (grayscale).

  • GPS

    GPS
    The Global Positioning System is a satellite navigation system used to determine the ground position of an object. GPS technology was first used by the United States military in the 1960s and expanded into civilian use over the next few decades. Today, GPS receivers are included in many commercial products.

    Digital Age Devices

    Our apprehension in this period is that it comprises the use of technology and most of the devices under this age are two-way communication devices. During this period we learned in our previous years that these devices make communication much easier and faster. If the electronic period devices are convenient enough, the digital devices are very much of good service. Also, the society would always prefer this period because this gives more ways of accessing information.
  • Instant Camera

    Instant Camera
    It produces a physical print of your image directly after the exposure is made without the aid of other devices. Polaroid, which has suspended it's instant film and camera line, is probably the most well-known for this process. Fuji still produces instant film and cameras, which are gaining in popularity.

  • DSLR

    DSLR
    (Digital Single Lens Reflex) A digital still image camera that uses a single lens reflex (SLR) mechanism. Most professional cameras have been single lens reflex, although analog film until digital SLRs emerged in the early 1990s.

  • Smart Phones

    Smart Phones
    The earliest generation of mobile phones could only make and receive calls. Today’s mobile phones, however, are packed with many additional features, such as web browsers, games, cameras, video players and even navigational systems. A mobile phone may also be known as a cellular phone or simply a cell phone.
