Re: No NEW inventions or ideas for decades??
Have humans now learned everything and stopped advancing?

I dont consider self driving cars or new models of CPUs or phones as new inventions as they are just modifications of existing products.

Same A/C power since Tesla invented it. Same wireless since Tesla. Same cars since Ford. Same airplanes. Same CPUs. Same transistors. Same rocket engines. Same robots. etc, etc, etc,

Yes, they all have gotten more perfected over time but nothing is new.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75373018


Too bad nobody wants a new never done before cyber security 'invention' that uses existing hardware + 1 change to stop all this hacking.

True, more of an evolution than a revolution, but when this is put in place there is no place any hacker or unwanted code can hide. Period.

Yep - too bad the gatekeepers kill off any great advancements - like the water powered car. Guy died after eating at a Cracker Barrel with some Arab billionaires ... walked out to the car to leave and boom dead.

Advancements have been there but those in power kill it off to stay in power.

That's an interesting question OP. I have wondered recently that we couldn't put a man on the moon right now if our lives depended on it. The Apollo Program in the 60's did it with slide rules and handwritten calculations FFS! And the planned Mission to Mars keeps getting pushed further and further back. Hell, we can't even put a Space Shuttle up with it blowing to pieces.

I really think the advancement of civilization has reached it's peak and we're heading back towards a new Dark Ages. Maybe that has to happen to stimulate new ideas.

i generally agree- the 1960's was the apex of civilization and technology

since then we have become lazy and readily amused with trinkets and gadgets like the endless smartphone apps that allow you to do something that you never had a need for, but now you do it just because you can
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 65257742


1960s tech was invented in the 40s or earlier. The moon rockets were just beefed up Nazi weapons. Solid state transistors were not new. etc.

Actually the real boom in intellect and invention was 1890-1920. In fact nothing else could have followed without A/C power.

The more distressing thing is the lack of moral progress.

Read the Gilded Age, by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner.

We have the same government and banking corruption, as well as media lying, that we had a hundred and fifty years ago.

The methods of lying, cheating, stealing, and murdering have been well known for much longer.

We know how to stop them, and we have machines that can read minds in astonishing detail, making lying impossible.

Why don't we use them?

Why don't we put an end to lies, criminality, and corruption forever?

Why do people want to protect evil?

Is everyone that insane?

It may be necessary to take another step and eliminate every one who stands in the way of eliminating evil.

Eliminate everyone who opposes the use of lie detectors.

This is a key point because lie detectors are an invention they want to suppress.

The technology may have reached a point where your phone could function as a personal lie detector - just point, scan, and record.

When technology has reached the point that it can end the power of the liars who have controlled the world since the beginning, it will be suppressed.

They might use it against the masses - brain scanners and facial recognition software, reading micro-expressions, and miniature spy devises of every kind to find out anything you do or think, for the purposes of manipulating and oppressing you, but they won't allow you to use that technology on them.

Re: No NEW inventions or ideas for decades??
I can name a few since 1990:

- Solid state light amplification, with EDFA (Erbium Doped
Fiber Amplifier). Allowed laser photon regeneration and
allowed current worldwide fiber optic network, using one
EDFA per 100 Km up to 1000 Km.

- Ultra high speed at Internet by using Hardware instead of
software for IP switching at routers. 100's of Terabits/sec

- Fractal antennae, embedded at every mobile phone, wich allow wideband reception and transmission far from the head!

- Home banking, e-commerce, social media (a shame, but still).

- Positron emission tomography (PET), to search full body for diseases.

- Molecular composite materials, allowing different coatings
being used at clothes, construction, aluminum, painting,
airplanes, seats,.....

- Replacement of aluminum by cooper at the junction between
chips and external leads, wich allowed the creation of
Gigaherts CPUs (from P4, thanks to IBM).

- DirecTV and equivalent, with Galaxy V class satellites and
25" antenna. This one has to be credited 100% to Hughes.

- Flat screens: Several technologies.

- Ion-Lithium batteries.

There are a lot of things, not visible by people, under the hood.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75397213


Exactly. Just incremental improvements of older technologies.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75072354


I can't understand how come a twisted and retarded mind feels entitled to be hypocritical, posing as someone who has an IQ above average.

The title clearly says "new inventions and ideas", so I wrote exactly about that.

Don't dare to use my own words for another meaning, POS!

Your life must sucks, specially at nights, when your innerself has to deal with what you have miserably to do during the day. Not even useful for trolling 101.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75397213


OK, to clarify:

Your list of items contradicts what you are trying to prove. You are trying to show that there have been new inventions, and then you provide a list of incrementally improved older inventions, for examples, better batteries.

Batteries were invented hundreds of years ago. Replacing one metal or chemical with another is not a new invention.

Now, compared to the battery, a solar cell is a new invention, but solar cells were invented in the 1950's so they are not new.

If you were to list something like:

* antigravity flying cars
* instant teleportation of people
* faster than light Space travel

being invented in the last ten years, then you would prove your point is correct, and that the OP is wrong.

But things like replacing one metal with another (aluminum with copper) in a specific application is not a new invention.

Look up " Patrick Flanagan ".

Profilic inventor, makes use of a reptilian organ we have used for hearing (Saccule).

Claims to be the reincarnation of Tesla

Over 300 inventions.

Literally cried because he can't share most of what he knows due to invading conflictions and war. (He claims to share roughly 1% of his knowledge)

Some good points friend, but maybe there's another reason why tech' has stalled?

Maybe it's time to stop inventing more and more things that we really dont need, and get on with understanding ourselves.

My wife is one of the best lie detectors I know, and she just has to flash those blue eyes and shake one's hand to instantly sum someone up.

If we were all at that level, things might be very different regarding all this brinksmanship we're seeing with the idiot in NK and the idiot in the US. Little boys, but unfortunately, with BIG toys.

Heck I'm guilty of designing and making pointless things.

If everyone had a house, warmth/cooling, water, food, clothes and access to energy of some kind, then imagine the lack of stress in everyone's lives to just get on with doing other stuff. Some poeple would always want more or better, but it would be a very different place, less hinged on control.

Maybe I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...

Hi all. A lot of folks have expressed how genius Tesla was, and for that matter Thomas Edison.

But have you ever thought that because of AC and DC, we have been stuck in a rut for a hundred years?

You talk about nothing new invented, but just about everything we have stems from being either AC or DC powered. The tools to design and discover are also AC/DC powered.

So there will be limits within that confined technology, including how we dream up, test and make new things, becaue it has to function within that confined tech'.

The truly new ideas I think will need to be based outside that tech, and may be things within the organic world of science, and natural occurances, rather than hard tech.

But EVERYTHING we're being programmed to do and want, is so far removed from that - deliberately, as it is far less easy to dominate and control.

Well, that argument is a dead end. Without A/C power especially NONE of the following inventions would have been possible. Power was needed to run factories that manufactured cars, planes, etc.

Claiming that A/C stopped other power sources from being developed is like saying that gasoline stopped steam engines. Actually, the best power source prevailed.

It is possible that A/C power is the best possible power source and is why it has never been surpassed. Or, a brain more powerful than Teslas has not been born yet to conceive and achieve it.

Re: No NEW inventions or ideas for decades??
All of us were talking about technology applied to very specific fields: computers, telecommunications, space exploration, nuclear energy, AC energy generation, gadgets, etc.

But medicine has been largely omitted, or chemistry, or metallurgy, among others. As for medical advances:

- The STENT.
- Computer controlled laser based heart tissue alteration
to prevent deadly arrhythmias.
- Glasses that allow color-blind people to see colors.
- Prostetics for inner ear and (around the corner) for the
blinded eye, with direct connection to neurons, allowing
deaf people to hear or blind people to see.
