[edit] Information

FASTER: Humanitys Quest to Save Time Series 1 This Series investigates the time-saving inventions we depend on and explores their impact on the world at large.

[edit] Elevator

At any given moment there are about 18,000,000 elevators operating around the world. They’re the backbone of the modern city and have quite literally shaped the world in which we live. But have you ever given any thought to just how much time they’re actually saving you? Or maybe even costing you?

[edit] Highway

Since the beginning of time, humanity has been on a quest to go further and get there faster. Over time, roads have evolved from the footpath to the high speed limited access highway. Today we take them for granted, but have you ever given any thought to whether they’re really saving us any time?

[edit] Shopping Mall

Over a lifetime, many of us spend hours, days, weeks, and even months in their covered, climate-controlled, everything-under-one roofs. Shopping malls didn’t only change the way we shop, they changed the way we think about shopping. And for better or worse, they changed the way we spend time.

[edit] Plastic Container

The invention of the sealable plastic container in 1946 changed the way we shop for food, the way we cook, and the way we eat. They allow us to eat on the move, prep in advance, and reduce food waste. But somewhere along the way, did they also contribute to an expectation of hyper-productivity?

[edit] Microwave

Discovered by accident in 1946, the microwave oven revolutionized kitchens and today is one of the most ubiquitous household appliances in the world.

[edit] Disposable Cup

Originally invented to save lives, the disposable cup would become an international symbol of busyness, a must-have multitasking accessory.

[edit] Bar Code

The barcode shortened check-out times, advanced the global supply chain, accelerated next-day delivery, and made same-day delivery possible.

[edit] Dishwasher

The dishwasher saves people about 230 hours a year, is kinder on your wallet and on the environment.
