New inventions are taking place in every field. Whatever things are here in the world in each minute a news invention or new technology is developing. Now a day everything becomes automatic. For example the washing machines, car locking system, TV sleep system. In washing machines we can give the time limit if the time limit reaches it automatically stops.
