Inventor’s Day 2021.
What would we do without our cup of coffee in the morning? Those essential vitamins? Or, with 2021 panning out pretty much the same as 2020, our entertainment hub, the television? What if none of the latter had been invented, we’d be lost, right? Inventor’s Day, celebrated annually on 11 February, acknowledges global inventors and inventions. It’s our inventiveness that sets us apart from every other species, and it’s through these inventions we see our progress.
While an inventor is a person who makes inventions and an invention is a unique or novel device, method, composition, or process, it can also be an improvement on a machine or product, or a new process for creating an object or a result. SKYWORTH is one such brand; “taking the television to the next level and leading the future in home entertainment technology has been, and will continue to be what we stand for, and deliver,” explains brand manager Jaco Joubert.
SKYWORTH was the first high-end television company to bring both Android and AI TV to market, opening consumers up to a whole new world of home entertainment. “Never before have more people been at home, not just to eat and sleep, but to work, than they have in the last year. For many who live alone, their TV has been their comfort, their entertainment and their connection to the outside world including their family and friends.”
Android TV makes it easier to get more from your TV. Choose from 700,000+ movies and shows from across streaming services. Ask Google to control your TV, get recommendations of what to watch, dim the lights, and more with your voice. Cast photos, videos, and music from smart devices to your TV with Chromecast built in.
The design: elegant, modern and sophisticated, with a 3rd Generation Infinity Screen, just proves how far we’ve come in terms of the culmination of technology and design. “Improvements on the television such as these have made our lives easier, better and often, during these tough times, bearable.”
Here’s why we love and should celebrate Inventor’s Day this Thursday, says Joubert:
It’s a celebration of ingenuity - Ingenuity is incredibly special, and something that should be fostered. For every great inventor, there was a community of people behind them that helped to realise their vision. While the day draws light on our inventors, hopefully, we'll be able to encourage the next generation of inventors to meet their fullest potential too.
It’s multicultural - Each country has their own inventors they're proud of. As we enter an age of increased globalisation, many of our latest inventions come from the greatest minds across different cultures. However, looking at inventions of any given culture can be an interesting lens through which to view its history.
It encourages learning - The processes of inventing and learning might be distinct, but they're inseparable. A society that encourages their inventors encourages learning, which is something worth celebrating.
