Top 5 Communications Devices of All Time

 

Communications has been easily assessable through the tips of our fingers and we must not forget how this was all made possible. To commemorate the communicative devices that lead to our recent advancements in communications technology, we list a top 5 list of what we believe to be most notable.

 

  1. Smart Phones

There is no doubt that Smart Phones have changed the way we communicate. We are not talking about just any mobile phone, but a highly intelligent device that allows users to do far more than just communicate with one another through traditional text messaging and calling. In retrospect, they allow users to explore the Internet, engage on various social platforms, and not to mention most of them now have built-in high definition cameras.

 

  1. Mobile Phones

After mobile phones were created, the world almost seemed to stop. People were used to being stuck to a landline, but the ability to communicate with one another while on the go, that was ground shattering. In fact, the impact that it made was so substantial that the following generation was barely phased by the ability of communicating through cellular technology and as a result, demanded more from innovators.

 

  1. Computer

The creation of the computer taught people that efficiency was a virtue to success. The goal of the computer was to make humans more efficient and the fact that it ended up being a foundation for the majority communication platforms was an accident.

 

  1. Walkie-Talkie

The Walkie-Talkie was the first handheld radio transceiver in the world and was developed during the Second World War by Motorola. The device, much like the telephone, was massive and required a rather large radio receiver and antenna that connected to the handset. As advancements were made, the size of the walkie-talkies were handheld and fit in your pocket. They are still being used today and were ever so impactful.

 

  1. Pager

Pagers began as rather primitive technology, until Motorola had taken technology from their Walkie-Talkies and transistorized the pagers. What this did was increase reliability and allowed the mass market to utilize this product. The most positively impacted industries are the medical, retail, public, and business ones.
