anything goes here, the more specific the better. And why their so good.

WIRE

Everything we have today either has wire in it, or is made by something with wire in that. From the lowly paperclip to the mightiest of military and scientific minds, wire controls all!

Steven Thalers Creativity Machine has got to be the craziest/coolest/scariest technology ever invented.

A computer that is given problems and thinks up ideas on how to resolve them, the New OralB toothbrush wasnt created by a man, it was invented by the creativity machine. In fact, the first invention ever thought up by the creativity machine was Version 2 of itself!!!

Robots thinking for themselves and creating new inventions completely on their own.

for piece of technology (this would exclude fire, etc.)

I'd have to go with (in this order)

telephone
car
internet
airplane

these 4 things have united the world, and made it a smaller place, in turn, bringing the world closer together
