Re: Has technology reached its peak?
no..its just getting started
the things you consider "technology", such as PCs, Cell phones, cars etc are just the tip of the iceberg, in the last 10 years robotics has advanced incredible amounts, just look at the work horse robot the military uses to carry supplies into mountains, you cannot knock that thing over..even by kicking it with all your might it will not lose its balance
also there is a "humanoid" robot that has been slowly becoming impressive, currently it can jump, walk, stack items and identify words, shapes and understands a fairly large number of vocal commands
Geothermal technology is also advancing pretty quickly, along with Nano technology and fiber optic.
The things in your day to day life are nothing compared to whats been done so far, in 10-20 years I can easily see an "iHouse" type of setup similar to the Jetsons
Eventually, your bed get you up; your floor will take you to the shower; your shower will clean and dress you; you will be put into your car which will drive you to work and then your alarm clock will go off to wake you up
