As a species we are constantly striving to move forward in all areas of life, with art we endeavour to be avant garde, within culture we struggle to be more open minded and within the sphere of technological advances there is a constant push into the unknown.
When it comes to the most popular inventions in our history, they all seem to come under the same type of umbrella: things that entertain us or that make life easier for us. It is no surprise then, that there are many producers of household appliances that are applying the most modern, cutting edge technology to their most recent products.
We could have asked a question concerning laziness fifty years ago when remote controls were being produced for television sets. The same basis of the question remains when we are speaking about Network-ready appliances.
The human condition will always make us want things easier, quicker and more convenient, but laziness is in the eye of the beholder and it is up to the individual as to what they do with modern appliances.
But we have to look at the positives when it comes to the evolution of the common kitchen appliance and realize there really are some upsides that benefit the greater good. For example, a Tumble Dryer bought at appliancesdirect.co.uk can now come with an A-50% efficiency rating, this means the appliance is now 50% more efficient than a standard ‘A’ rating appliance.
Energy efficient appliances really do make for the kitchen and household of the future, whether or not things are becoming more convenient. A Washing Machine found at Appliances Direct would run at the best energy efficiency levels that have ever been designed into a “smart” self-serviceable appliance.
Whether we are getting lazier or not does not fall on the shoulders of new technology. The element of the evolution of technology that should be focused on is that of energy efficiency.
