Most of the tools that we have the tools that we have today were originally made by the people that we came from. Some of those tools are the harpoon and spears. Even though we came from these apes/humans, we are different in many different ways, not only in looks.
First to make and control fire. (used tools to do so.) They made it by twirling a short sharpened stick in a wooden groove filled with wood shavings to start the fire. Because they could make fire, they could live in colder climates
May have used tools to make rafts to travel over waters
Used more complex tools such as axes, and long distance tools like spears
By using bones and rocks to chip away at pieces of flint, the homo erectus were able to make blades for cutting and scraping
Have made the most superior tools that we still use today. Some of those tools have become better tools like the computer. The computers and phones and stuff like that are one of the newest inventions.
Overall, all of these people have made tools that we probably wouldn’t be alive without them. They have tools to help you think like computers, some to help you with warmth, and many others for things that would be hard to live without.
