If aliens had something like hands with something like opposable thumbs and intelligence and a few hundred thousand years, then possibly they might develop technology similar to ours.
So what is an opposable thumb? According to anon NSTA News: “Human thumbs are called opposable thumbs. They are called opposable because the thumb can be moved around to touch the other fingers, which gives people the ability to grasp things. Most primates (humans, apes, and Old World monkeys) and some other animals have opposable thumbs.”
