Ah, how our lives would be so totally different if we were not able to mass produce silicone chip designs. It is seriously incredible that a company can produce tens of millions of the same product and have 99%+ of production be practically the same. With the complexity of the design and parts in a modern computer or phone, the prices are even more incredible. If these had to be hand-made and we never developed mass production factories, then it's likely inferior products would cost millions of dollars. It is also incredible I can type this and a thousand people will eventually read this post, all instantaneously. We can pull up a video and watch it in incredible clarity. 4K is practically real-life mirrored in front of you but even sharper and more colorful. Movies could not have existed just a few dozen years ago. Hell, it's amazing a company can produce a 200-million-dollar movie and be profitable. But now we have so much more: episodic TV shows that are basically quality hundred-hour movies, video games that should be strikingly lifelike within 15 years, etc. etc. With technology such as self-driving cars in the pipeline, we are living the transition to the future people have been anticipating for hundreds of years right now. If we really take a second to appreciate the design and mass production intricacy + the infrastructure necessary to provide content that goes into making the tech future possible for everyone, it is absolutely insane how far we have come. If somebody described a tablet to you even fifty years ago and how hundreds of millions will be sold within a few years and asked you to bet whether such a device will exist, you would have probably betted against it. Hell, it's even incredible how a house is in reach of the majority. Architecture has surpassed expectations of what it was expected be like hundreds of years from now. There are countless more examples: medicine, food, etc. etc. etc. We can walk to a supermarket and buy a banana for a measly $.50. I'd even venture to say it's incredible that fruit, meat, etc. can be packaged and affordably sold. You can purchase practically whatever food you want and not pay an arm-and-a-leg. Should stop and realize how incredible it is that this is all possible in our lifetime. We are living the future people anticipated for hundreds of years; possibly an even better one.
