Have you ever asked yourself, "Who invented the first automobile" or as we call it the car. The technology I chose for my school project is the automobile. It was invented in Germany at the year 1886. Karl Benz the maker of the automobile is also an engine designer and car engineer. It is a transportation vehicle, and it is very different from our present day Mercedes Benz. Some of the differences from the Karl Benz automobile and the Mercedes Benz car are: air conditioning, speed, number of wheels and many more. It cost 850$ in 1886 about 18,000 dollars today. It was invented for transportation and it is not portable.
