Technology can be most broadly defined as the material entities created by the application of mental and physical effort of the people to nature in order to achieve some value. In this use of technology is the current state of our knowledge of how to combine resources to produce desired products, to solve problems, fulfill needs, or satisfy wants. Technology in this sense includes technical methods, skills, processes, techniques, tools and raw materials .

The history of technology is at least as old as humanity. Some primitive forms of tools have been discovered with almost every find of ancient human remains dating from the time of homo habilis.Nevertheless, other animals have been found to use tools—and to learn to use and refine tools so as to incorrect to distinguish humans as the only tool-using or tool-making animal. The history of technology follows a progression from simple tools and simple energy sources to complex high-technology tools and energy sources.The earliest way of technologies converted readily to occure natural resources such as rock, wood and other vegetation, bone and other animal byproducts into simple tools.
