The Next Big Step by Siemens (Video) Michael Kwan November 9, 2012 Technology continues to advance in leaps and bounds, but a lot of this has to do with how we are going to power our digital lifestyles moving forward. When cavemen first discovered fire, they figured out how to keep warm and cook their food. The Romans harnessed the power of water and we are now burning all kinds of fossil fuels. The trouble with fossil fuels is that they’re not exactly sustainable and they are polluting the environment. There has to be a better way. There has to be a “next big step” and that’s exactly what Siemens is trying to accomplish. They’re looking to the future and developing technology that continues to drive this innovation. Watch the video below and it’ll chronicle some of the advances that human civilization has made over the years when it comes to energy and how it has changed our society, but it also points toward the future and what we can do about that. Interestingly, what could be one of the best ways to move forward is to draw some inspiration from our past. Remember how Leonardo da Vinci worked on his innovations in rotary technology? Remember how we figured out how to mill our grains? Let’s just say that Siemens could be aiming to “blow you away” and “going offshore” could be a good thing.
