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


YES, a good choice.
And they all use/require electricity.

And wire. Wire also helps move electricity. Besides, we didn't invent electricity. We just found a way to generate it.

medicinals and herbal practices have been around for such a long time, and are better for you. No side effects.

I'd agree that the practice of medice is good... it's just that medicine is bad.

Despite another ATS forum making scary remarks about microwave ovens, I do think that has been a fairly useful piece of technology... And if not totally necessary, at least very convenient one.

About medical science, I'd say antibiotics, immediately followed by antiseptics and aseptics. The most likely reasons to increase the life expectancy during the last century or so.

Atomic Weapons.

And not its not because Im some punk kid who likes explosions, I just think the Atomic Weapon is the cornerstone of everything invented after it was first used.

FM Diode.

Freq Modulation is the most important "concept" technology that has been created.

Although we lack comprehensive knowledge as to its exact value.

Think about how many things require this one little concept to operate. Think about sound waves and light waves (lasers), communications, WiFi, GSM, GPS, microchips (everything using microchip controllers), transponders, air traffic control, sonar, radar, AC Power, etc.

And that is just the begining.
