2013 Challenge, Week 12: Technology

Keeping in mind that the personal computer started creeping into our homes in the 1980s, technology has been evolving at an astronomical rate. Our daily lives in modern society are now entirely intertwined with technology.

Audio and video tapes are an alien concept to a younger generation who’s grown accustomed to CDs, DVDs and downloadable digital media.

For week 12 of the 2013 PhotoChallenge lets document how technology has become part of our daily lives at home, at work and even in our cars.

Navigation

Paper maps and navigation tools are pretty much a thing of the past. GPS technology adapted from the military has made it to our dashboards and and even our smartphones.

Skype

Keeping in touch with loved ones while on travel is now easier than ever with video conferencing. Once an expensive proposition video conferencing is now relatively free.

Radar detector going crazy.

With the use of radar and laser detectors, technology can save us a few dollars should we inadvertently speed down the freeway headed for a state trooper with a radar gun.

With advances in medical laser technology an Ophthalmologist can now give you back 20/20 vision with a Lasik surgery procedure.

Advances in manufacturing technologies and materials even help the good old fashion bicycle become lighter, stronger and faster than ever before.

There’s a million and one ways how technology has changed our lives. Technology is now evolving on a daily basis so you shouldn’t run out of subjects and ideas for this photo challenge. Show us the impact technology has on your life.

Participating in the 2013 PhotoChallenge is fun and easy. Post and share your images with the PhotoChallenge Community on  Google+, Facebook,or Flickr.
