We're currently living in an age where we as a population are less impressed by new technological advances. The computer age sped up the rate of invention
, and children of this age are tuned to simply be less impressed. The high frequency of viable new inventions and incredible innovations made us grow accustomed to them. Amazingly, we actually expect new inventions and innovations to drop at an alarmingly high rate, and rarely, nowadays, do they impress, even though they should. However, another way to look at our collective apathy toward modern day invention and innovation is to wonder if, possibly, the technological age in which we live redefined what it means to be innovative; so it's not that we're less impressed by innovation, but we don't necessarily know what it means to be innovative anymore.
