10 Greatest Inventions of the 21st Century


Many lists out there, such as this talk about inventions that have already come and passed us by. This list is dedicated to some inventions that are coming soon down the road and might be a tad speculative. However, the innovations listed below are quite arguable, as several of them are already in the works now. It is possible that over time some of these things listed may change as far as recognition is concerned. So here now is a collection of ten top inventions of the 21st century.

1. Robotics


Although many robots have been around since the 20th century, it will be here and now in the 21st when they will really become practical and more popular. These machines can tackle countless tasks, from carpentry, fire-fighting, dismantling bombs, house chores and the like. In fact, many firmly cling to the belief that by the time this century has come to an end every single household in the world will have robots in operation for something. The applications for robots in the military are likely the most promising. They can clear out a mine field or carry out deadly missions that would be too much for human soldiers to undertake. Just how intelligent will these machines be you ask? The answer is that they will only be a smart as man wants them to be. But don’t worry about robots pulling a Terminator world take over, as they will still need to be repaired, maintained and programmed by humans.
