Technology has come so far, just in the last decade alone. Where we are now is so far ahead than where we were before the 2010s and, thankfully, it's easy to look up the fantastic advancements we've made as a species and debate which one was the most helpful, most useful, or the most innovative.


Reddit user, u/[deleted], wanted to know what you thought:

What is the best human creation in the last 10 years?

Oh Yeah, Worldwide Pandemic...

Covid vaccine

Its amazing what our species can do when you give a bottomless budget to a bunch of experts that are competing to solve a problem.

PathosRise

In reality, it is pretty impressive over the span it was made. Most vaccines take approx. 10 years to develop. We fast tracked that to 1 year

For Those Of Us With Kids This Has Been A Big Help

Contactless food delivery

They seriously better keep this option after Covid

Same with shopping on your phone, driving to the store, and them loading it in your car. Especially nice when you have kids, and i can walk to my kitchen to see what i have!

Something So Small

Robot lawnmower. It saved my marriage and he's so cool to watch bumping around the garden.

'It saved my marriage ' Ya'll freaky

Too many arguments over who's going to cut the grass. We have a large garden on a slope. Trying to push a big a-- cabled lawnmower around every week was a killer. Neither of us wanted to do it. We bought it as a wedding gift to ourselves.

The Good Stuff Didn't Come Until Less Than 10 Years Ago

Netflix streaming.

Ain't nothing better than Netflix and chill.

sameolemike

You could actually stream Netflix more than ten years ago. However its catalog was filled with b list movies and sh-t you'd not really want to see. I remember I gave up on it until a girl I dated was like you want to watch Netflix? I was thinking nah there's nothing good on it. Then she loaded it up and I was floored by the content, it had almost everything you could want back then.

Keeping The World Connected And Clean

Discord, it's actually insane how useful and [reliant] it is. Other chat and voice servers like skype and teamspeak really dropped the ball. And discord is doing all of it perfectly tbh.

Insta Pot.

No. The fast pressure cooker that makes 8-10 hour cooks under an hour. Gourmet homecooked food in an hour or less.

Advances For The Betterment Of People's Health

mRNA research for diseases has to be up there.

Also, graphene is pretty incredible.

Edit: Also, I saw a research paper the other day about a radiation type of battery that could power small devices like pacemakers for tens of thousands of years. I think it was diamond or something and it was just a proof of concept.

We Could Have Had 3D Printed Lamps Earlier??

3d printers they can be programed to make clothes, weapons, plates, cups, instruments and more.

LieutenantPoly

Actually, 3D printing has been around for a few decades. It got popular recently because an essential patent regarding it, expired.

3D printing could have started being a thing in the mid 80s.

Synthetic. Skin. WHAT?

Synthetic skin in my opinion was very revolutionizing. It may not be the best but in my opinion, it was amazing how so many scientists told the inventor that it was impossible, but he did it anyways and now people can survive excessive skin grafting without the body rejecting the new skin. Allows survival from intense burns

Clinuvel Pharmaceuticals is the Aussie company that is leading the charge on this. Ticker is CUV on the ASX if anyone is interested.

You know, I've seen countless "no texting while driving campaigns" and I agree with the premise. I think it is dangerous not to have your eyes on the road. That's how accidents happen. With that said, don't car manufacturers think it's counterintuitive to include touchscreens instead of knobs or dials in new cars these days? You have to take your eyes off the road to adjust anything. I think it's hazardous, especially if you happen to be driving in inclement weather.

After Redditor TheTenthDimension asked the online community, "What's your best example of 'Whoever designed this must not use their own product'?" people shared some suggestions.

If only all the things we excelled at were also the very things we loved to do most. But sadly, that is not the way it goes.

Instead, some horrible force of the universe made you way better at, say, sewing the holes of pants than playing guitar. The universe can be a spiteful, fickle jerk.

In a perfect world, family has your back harder than anyone else.

In the real world, it can sometimes be your family that cuts deeper than anyone else. Intentional or not, the people closest to you have the ability to seriously super suck.

No, you're not the only one who has dealt with a mom who just, for the life of themselves, can't NOT be critical. Or a dad who just always seemed chronically underwhelmed by you.

Society is an odd conundrum when you attempt to wrap your head around it. This phenomena typically occurs whenever you witness a new trend or share experience and everyone seems to go along with it. Only much later, when you think about it with a bit of critical thinking, do you notice something might be off.

Going against society can be strained, difficult, like pulling back a sticker that's been on way too long, however sometimes it's necessary to get rid of what we probably shouldn't be so welcoming of.
