Technology (“science of craft,” from Greek τέχνη, techne, “art, skill, cunning of hand”; and -λογία, -logia) is the sum of many methods, skills, techniques, and rules used in the creation of goods or services or the achievement of purposes, such as experimental investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, methods, and the like, or it can be inserted in mechanisms to allow for development without a detailed understanding of their workings. Systems (e.g., appliances) utilizing technology by taking an input, changing it according to the system’s use, and producing an outcome are technology systems or technological systems.
The most simplistic form of technology is the improvement and use of necessary tools. The unknown discovery of shaped stone tools, developed by how to control fire, increased food sources. The later Neolithic Revolution enlarged this and quadrupled the nourishment possible from a territory. The discovery of the wheel helped humans to progress in and measure their environment.
Improvements in momentous times, including the print press, the telephone, and the Internet, have lessened physical barriers to communication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale.

- Produce goods or services.
- Carry out purposes, such as scientific investigation or sending a spaceship to the moon.

What are technology and examples?
Technology is the way we apply scientific knowledge for practical purposes. It includes machines (like computers) and techniques and processes (like how we produce computer chips). A hammer and the wheel are two examples of early human technology.
