Technology is the study and practice of applying knowledge creatively to tasks that involve both people and machines, and also refers to the tools, equipment or other products that result from technological knowledge. It involves innovative, practical solutions that meet specific needs, rather than simply studying how or why things work, and also takes into account how users of technology interact with machinery or products. Technological pursuits typically involve many fields, such as engineering, designing, manufacturing, and systems thinking.
