Broadening Our Inventions With New Technology

Many of the inventions that we use today are successful because they can be used in a variety of settings and produce more than one product. If an invention of some kind is able to cross industry boundaries and lend itself to many different products, then it is easy to assume that this invention will be very marketable and profitable. For this to happen, the same science that this product uses for the most basic models can be tweaked and updated for a variety of models with similar uses. This article will demonstrate this concept by giving an example.

Do you know what a vacuum pump is? We probably think first and foremost of our personal household vacuum cleaners. At least those of us who typically use vacuum cleaners might think of them first. What other objects besides household vacuums are around us that use vacuum pumps? There are so many different products and processes which use vacuum pumps. This invention was created hundreds of years ago and yet we still use it today. It is used in a variety of settings and environments. That shows you how useful it has proven to be for us. There have been many additions and recreations of this product which make it very versatile. Modern technology has also helped this creation branch out into many different industries and fields.

There are many products that use vacuum pumps which we may not fully realize. Did you know that there are different instruments on airplanes that use vacuum pumps to function? In most cases, this is just used so that in case there is any engine failure and the instruments do not receive power anymore, the instruments will still work because of the energy produced by the vacuum pump. This is such a unique way to use a vacuum pump. If you have a trash compactor at your home or work place, this device also uses a vacuum pump to function.

There are many inventions that we use today which give us a variety of formulas to get different results. The science is the general base of the invention, but the invention can be tweaked depending on what the intended result is. This way, we are able to continually increase along with technology to keep our inventions modern. These inventions help us live our lives in a very convenient way which we have grown accustomed to and they help us live safer lives as well.
