Arvid Orbeck Jr.: Three Significant Modern Inventions

by Arvid Orbeck Jr

Following in the footsteps of his grandfather Einar M. Orbeck who was an inventor, with one of his most notable inventions being the metering systems for gas pumps, Arvid Orbeck Jr. has also built a successful career patenting and developing new technologies that should have noticeable global benefits such as the ones mentioned below.

The world is constantly evolving and being introduced to new inventions. Three have had especially significant impacts on our lives.

1. The Internet. The Internet is essentially artificial telepathy. With it, information is transmitted across the world in just seconds. Today, more than 1.2 billion people on Earth are connected, and the number continues to grow.

2. The Laser. Also known as Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, lasers are essential parts of our lives. Today, we use them for a number of tasks, including playing discs in our home players, delicate surgical operations, precise measurement, and guiding weapons.

3. The Mobile Phone. Today, more than 2 billion people use mobile phones. It is hard to believe that just 30 years ago only a few people knew what a cell phone was. Now, mobile phones are replacing landlines, serving as the backbone for all professional and personal communication.
