Well lets have a look at the development of these devices mobiles, laptops, nano technology, space flight, gps.
First the Mobile telephone.
The invention of the telephone is the culmination of work done by many individuals, the history of which involves a collection of claims and
counterclaims. The prerequisite for the development of the telephone goes back to the year 1833 were Carl Friedrich Gauß and Wilhelm Eduard Weber
invented the electric transmission of signals in Göttingen which set the fundamental basis for the technology that was used in all inventions
following. This invention is recognized to be the first electromagnetic telegraph of the world
The first TRUE mobile phone.
It could be argued to be truly mobile a telephone has to be handheld and work anywhere. That being the case, then Japan had the first mobile
system when it introduced the world's first cellular telephone network in 1979.
So from 1833-1979 = 146 years a SPIKE
First TRUE computer
1936 Konrad Zuse - Z1 Computer First freely programmable computer.
Laptop ? You would need a big lap.
The first mass-produced microprocessor-based portable computer was the Osborne 1 in 1981
By the end of the 1980s, laptop computers were becoming popular among business people. The COMPAQ SLT/286 debuted in October 1988, being the first
battery-powered laptop to support an internal hard disk drive and a VGA compatible LCD screen. It weighed 14 lbs.
Still not quite what we consider as a laptop.
1936-1988 52years not exactly a spike.
Nanotechnology is very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular
self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to direct control of matter on the atomic scale. Nanotechnology entails
the application of fields of science as diverse as surface science, organic chemistry, molecular biology, semiconductor physics,
Nanotechnology is a combination and realies on so many sciences can we say when it started?
Again space flight depends on so many technologies
First recorded flight The Wright Bros maybe not!
The Flying Monk 1010 AD
Nine hundred years before the Wright Brothers, manned flight was being attempted in England
He did survive!
More here The Flying Monk
First manned space flight 1961 1010 AD - 1961 is 951 YEARS
In 1951, Ivan Getting became the vice president for engineering and research at the Raytheon Corporation. The first three-dimensional,
time-difference-of-arrival position-finding system was suggested
Development work on GPS commenced in 1973 as a result of the merger of several R&D programs within the U.S. Department of Defense, namely the
Navy's "TIMATION" project, and the Air Force's "621B" project. The first satellite was launched in 1978
Now satellites are dependant on the development of flight then space flight.
All these technologies DEPEND on the development of other technologies.
There is NO spike as claimed because so many processes had to be completed to achieve what we have.
