In 1911 a New Zealand town had electric street lights controlled by chickens: Were people more innovative 100 years ago?

  • Yes, some were more innovative 100 years ago.

    In some ways, people were more innovative 100 years ago. A century ago, there was not nearly as much technology that exist today. Therefore, people were forced to be more innovative (think outside the box) when developing solutions to problems. Many early inventors used unique ways to make their inventions work.

  • No, technology is constantly advancing

    We certainly have more innovative technology in this day and age than chickens controlling street lights, although that is an interesting fact. We can keep in constant contact with one another through Face-timing on Ipads and Iphones, not to mention the virtual reality technology and self driving cars that are being developed and implemented in recent years.

    People were not more innovative 100 years ago. While there were great innovations back then, such as electric street lights controlled by chickens, we have equally impressive inventions going on. Today, space travel among individuals is within our grasp, we have cell phones, and cars powered by electric. Innovation is constant.
