It isn’t just science and engineering that has benefited form the technological advancements, art and sports too revolves around such advancements. Be it the disc spinning disc-jockey at a local pub or the Olympic swimmer whose health is regularly monitored, both avail the countless uses of technology. From microscopes at school laboratories and escalators at malls to complicated equipment at the NASA institutes and equipment at a cricket stadium, all are testimony of technology’s advantages.
