When we think about technology we might think about NASA, lasers, computers, the internet, energy, electronic gadgets or even certain types of transportation but technology has been around long before these inventions. The Gutenberg printing press is one such example.
The Gutenberg printing press appeared in the 15th century. It revolutionized the world and it’s a great example of world changing technology.
