After the frame of my glasses broke this morning, I realized how much I took for granted the fact of perfect eye sight when wearing them.
It also caused me to look around me and notice how many people actually wear glasses on a daily basis.How did people get by in the earlier years?
In modern times we look at the 3D TV as the new line of next generation screens. 10 years ago the mere thought of a flat screen was unheard of really. The movie Minority Report showed some impressive screen that reacted to hand gestures. Soon that will be our future.
Is this how people saw glasses when they first became a speculation? Two glasses that you wear on your face that would enable you to see better. People probably listened in disbelieve and wondered if they would ever "see" it in their lifetime. Some maybe dared to dream of owning one.
What about a kettle?
We need a cup of coffee or tea and we simply switch on the kettle. There is no need to first start a fire so that you can heat up the water.
Somewhere in most cities there is a workshop that uses lasers to shape glasses that is perfect for you. Technology is used to improve our live in the highest regard, because if it wasn't for sight we would not be able to enjoy most of the new gadgets and tech stuff presented to us.
It makes me wonder what else are we taking for granted...
