Agreed! One of my passions is also taking nature pictures. I love to pick a spot in the woods and just walk around looking for shots. There is a cool park near here. I n need to check it out. Been awhile since I took any pictures.

What do you think of our current state of technology?

Better than ever :p . Although, I am a bit worried about the next 100 years or so... seems to be quite a few ways in which we could accidentally destroy ourselves if we're not careful!

Probably not... something like that will probably be invented, but it won't be applied in the real world :p .
Let me rephrase. I don't actually mean a tangible object, but more that tech will become so advanced, and us so reliant on it, that *if* it ever fails, we'd be back to the dark ages. Agree or disagree? :)

Quite possibly. We're already one coronal mass ejection away from having much of our communications infrastructure knocked out... that might not knock us back to the Dark Ages, but it'd get us close (at least, for a while!)

Yup, I heard about that. Is there any way to shield our tech from those?

Well, there's Faraday cages, but we can't really build one around the entire planet :p .

(There are Faraday bags that we can put our electronic items in, but I don't have one of those!)
Hopefully, critical systems will be protected if something does happen!

How much do they cost?

They're not too expensive. Just from quick Googling, a Faraday pouch that can accommodate car keys can be bought for under £10 - and one that can store a laptop can be bought for around £80.

(Though, I'm guessing you'll find them cheaper than that if you shop around!)
 
  • Thumbs up!!
