Technology has been advancing robustly during the last 100 or so years. Can we contuniue to make such leaps and bounds in this feild indefinatley? Or will we hit a so called "ceiling" or "plateau" that will inhibit our inovation? How can we sustain such momentum? Or what will inped us? What do you think?

I think that it is possible that technology will stop going so fast. I do not think that it will move as fast as it is now, that is for sure. I do think that it will be a kind of minimal improvement, similar to phones who get an update every year. It will probably never completely stop, but it will most likely stop moving like it has in the past 100 years.

I think that we might build everything and we wont have any ideas to build other stuff. OR like the flying cars in the movies we might not have that type of technology.

There are some things people have dreamed of that will never happen. For example the time machine.

The plateau of technology does not lie in the failure of creation, but rather the will of man. In our current time, luxury is an abundance that has no short supply (as long as your wallet is doesn't run dry). Now with this luxury comes pros and cons. The pros are obvious. Current technology increases economical wealth, advances transportation and communication, and can increase national security.

The cons are those of the human race. In this luxury comes the fear of loss of comfort. Children would prefer to remain in the convenience of their electronics rather than endure the frustration of invention. So in my opinion, technology relies on the discipline and perseverance of the human race, not the vast resources of creation.

Everything they make will be able to get better and better. So if everything can get better than they will not stop till it is perfect and that can never happen.

Technology hasn't failed yet (i think) but if it did they would have to make a prototype and test it. The creators aren't stupid they always test things before they give it out to the public.

It will never stop it will just be used or harnessed in a different way I believe that the next way technology will by used is in medicine expanding peoples life expectancy. The way technology is used will change in my opinion that is definite, but I believe that technology will never plateau. Also because technology is not just computers, for it is "Machinery and equipment developed from such scientific knowledge."Not computers or electronic devices.

I think we will always be advancing in technology. We will always be thinking of new ideas with every generation. Everyone will be advancing in ideas. Everyone has new ideas.

I think technology will never plateau. People will always have ideas. They will always try to make things bigger (or smaller) and better. Even though we have jumped so much in technology over the past 100 years it doesn't mean we will run out of ideas.

Technology may slow down, but it won't ever stop. People are lazy and greedy. I something is invented to make life easier they will just want more until they don't have to do anything.

Technology is very useful, we use Technology every day. Technology can be used in everything. So it will keep advancing until the day the Rapture comes. It will always get better either make it smaller with more Technology in a smaller device.

Technology is a wide array of things. People think that technology is going to plateau because Apple cant make for iphones or Ipads. Well, technology is used for more things than entertainment. Such as the field of the Army. Imagine every device, every job needs to be advanced some day. that alone will take a long time. Another example is the medical field. That field alone will take a long time to advance its technology.
