The iPhone 6 is a good example of the reduction of performance load in recent times. The iPhone offers the opportunity to complete standard phone tasks and supply music, emails and access to social media. Therefore, reducing the kinematic load through the easy access and lower number of steps involved
A Kettle is another example of the reduction of performance load through the lessening steps involved in boiling water, and thus of kinematic load. The ability to be able to boil water at the touch of a button has reduced the cognitive and kinematic loads involved in the process.
The invention of electric heaters has drastically reduced the cognitive and kinematic loads involved in the production of heat. The overall exertion of energy required is minimal in comparison to the amount previously required to light a fire.
