Smart devices have taken our entire world by storm. From the introduction of computers and mobile phones to now being able to control every aspect of our lives with some form of smart device. Including smart light bulbs and thermostats that can be controlled from your phone.
But how are these smart devices changing our lives?
Previously before smart devices were invented, people relied on sending letters to people or speaking to them in person. Now we are able to communicate with people all over the world at the click of a button. We are able to work with and create friendships with people from all over the world. It is crazy to think that one small device has added this amount of freedom to the world.
However, all of the changes have not been for the best. Of course, along with freedom there comes danger. People are speaking to people they don’t know, maybe even sharing personal details and putting themselves at risk. Some smart devices have also allowed us as a nation to become lazier. With people choosing to install smart devices that can be controlled from their phones so they do not need to leave their beds to complete simple tasks.
So whilst the introduction of smart devices has been amazing in some aspects. There are times where they may be more of a hindrance. People are spending more of their time online. People are becoming lazy. And this could be part of the reason why we are seeing an increase in obesity.
Smart devices have in our opinion changed our lives for the better. It has helped people to connect and businesses to grow. But people need to still remember to keep fit, connect with people in person, and most important keep themselves safe.

There are many different methods that can be used for moulding plastics. Today, we are going to share two of the more common moulding techniques and what they are used for.
Thermoforming Moulding Process
This type of moulding process uses sheets of thin thermoplastic that is pressed into the mould through a vacuum process. The plastic will be heated until it is malleable which is when it will go through a vacuum to be put into place. This moulding process leaves no visible seams on the finished product, you will just need to trim away any excess plastic that escaped the mould.
This form of moulding technology is where a thin sheet of plastic or film is stretched over a mould. The vacuum process will then suck the film around the mould creating the product that you desire. this can again be used for products that need a clean finish to them, with no seams showing.

It is likely that when you are walking around your local neighbourhood you have noticed smart doorbells, or you may even have one yourself. But, where did these smart doorbells come from? With everything, it is important to look back on where items originated from, so this is what we are going to do today.
The First-Ever Doorbell
There are two main doorbells I want to discuss with you today. The first two to ever come around.
The first being a metal ring that would hang on the door that you could use as a knocker. This came around after people were becoming sore from knocking on doors, so someone invented this item, which is still used today, to save your hands!
The second is where the name doorbell came from. It is essentially a bell on your door. People would hang bells by their doors for people to ring to make the homeowner aware they were at the door.
How Have Doorbells Changed?
It is without a doubt that doorbells have taken a massive change. With them slowly progressing from a simple bell hanging by the door. To being an electronic doorbell with a simple button press that you would be able to hear all over your home. These electronic doorbells are still commonly used today, but there has been more progress in recent years. We have seen the invention of video camera doorbells. These work the same as electronic doorbells but they have another feature. They can provide you with video footage of everyone who goes near your front door. They can also connect to your phone, allowing you to communicate with anyone who is at your door while you are away from your home.
Video doorbells have become increasingly popular with them adding an extra layer of protection to your home.
