Industrial technology is one of the five major categories of technology. Industrial technology involves new equipment, innovations or concepts which make your factories and production of goods faster, cheaper or otherwise more efficient.

Industrial subcategories

Power

The Power subcategory improves RGO output. Inventions will also eventually unlock automobile and airplane factories.
