Unfortunately, hindsight can be a bit of a blessing and a curse, and when we look back over the course of the last few decades we have seen the boom and bust of some huge tech companies. Well here at Jolt we thought it would be interesting to look back and see what would have happened had you invested just $1,000 into some of these companies upon their initial public offering.For instance, if you had put away a bit of your savings into Amazon in the middle of 1997 you would now be on your way to becoming a millionaire with a whopping $643,000, meanwhile if you had done the same for Twitter back in 2013 it would now amount to only $406. The real kicker however is that if you had put your money down onto some Bitcoin back in 2001 you would now have a stash of cash worth approximately 35 Million dollars!
Robots have fascinated film-makers for generations, from the days of silent films to the modern blockbusting Hollywood films of today. Where once long ago they were merely a plot device or fictional idea in a scriptwriters story, today robots in reality are becoming more and more advanced. Major robotic competitions are often held, with one of the biggest and best being the incredible World Robot Olympiad. This year the event is being held in Sochi, Russia and promises to be an exciting event.Inspired by the WRO, our infographic celebrates our love of robots at Jolt, looking at 30 different robots stretching right across the decades. From the silent streets of Metropolis, which were the stomping grounds of false Maria, right up to the Jaeger warriors of Pacific Rim, protecting the planet from the portal crashing Kaijus.
