technology we take for granted: look how gigantic this robotic hand was then: General Electric Exoskeleton...none of the nano tech we enjoy today but it had to start somewhere ; )...this robo arm feels like Microsoft's Big Ass Table vs iPad battle ; )
Ralph Mosher, an engineer working for General Electric in the 1950s, developed a robotic exoskeleton called Hardiman. The mechanical suit, consisting of powered arms and legs, could give him superhuman strength.

The Alfa [bicycle] weighs 20lbs, yet supports riders up to 24 times its weight. It’s mostly cardboard and 100% recycled materials, yet uses a belt-driven pedal system that makes it maintenance free. And, maybe best of all, it’s project designed to be manufactured at about $9 to $12 per unit (and just $5 for a kids version.)

50 Years of Space Travel In One Beautiful Solar System Map
Infographic Map of NASA's accomplishments. In over 50 years of space exploration, we've reached out to the furthest stretches of our Solar System and beyond! Voyager is the first man-made object to explore beyond the reaches of our Solar System, and will be mankind's first step to becoming an interstellar species. NASA needs our support to continue another 50 years!
As of 2009, this is what the map looks like on human space programs and our reach into outer space

When building a new house, use Node Electric Outlets, eliminates the need for a power strip. Just plug it in anywhere on this is a great idea
Node Electric Outlet: Using a powerstrip for more than 2 devices? The Node 12050 Electric Outlet eliminates the need for a power strip. It will occupy much more wall space, but, with it’s minimalist lines it should blend into most any setting. Currently the Node is in the conceptual phase, though the designer, Metaphys, does sellactual products. So keep an eye out, because if it was up to us, these would’ve gone on sale at Home Depot yesterday.

Transparent photovoltaics have yet to grace the face of your smartphone, but don't give up hope -- UCLA researchers are working on a new see-through solar cell that's showing potential. Using a new type of polymer solar cell, the team has been able to build a device that converts infrared light into electrical current. Current prototypes boast 4 percent energy conversion efficiency at 66 percent transparency -- not crystal clear, but certainly clean enough to peer through.

Solar Panel Windows »Will It Blend? // Solar research is enabling the development of solar power technologies that blend into their environments, making them easier to incorporate into fine home design. Just last month, UCLA researchers announced the development of transparent solar cells. The technology could be used to develop ordinary home windows that generate electrical power.

oldschoolgarage: Wernher von Braun stands in front of the F1 engines on the Apollo, circa 1967
Credited as the "Father of Rocket Science," Wernher von Braun developed the technology that would land the first men on the moon in 1969. Werner von Braun in front of the Saturn V Rocket in Rocket Park, U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Huntsville, AL
Werner Von Braun standing in front of stage one of a Saturn V.He served as director of the newly formed Marshall Space Flight Center and as the chief architect of the Saturn V launch vehicle, the superbooster that propelled the Apollo spacecraft to the Moon. According to one NASA source, he is "without doubt, the greatest rocket scientist in history". His crowning achievement was to lead the development of the Saturn V booster rocket that helped land the first men on the Moon in July 1969.
Dr. von Braun, standing next to one of the five engines at the after end of the Saturn V vehicle's first stage (on display at the Alabama Space Museum). Wernher von Braun was a German-born rocket scientist, aerospace engineer, space architect, and one of the leading figures in the development of rocket technology in Nazi Germany during World War II and, subsequently, the United States.

The Pussycar Automodule 1970
“Honey, I’m taking the Bubble Mobile to the disco!” This wacky concept car from 1970s France was called l’Automodule. Designed by engineer Jean Pierre Ponthieu, the vehicle was equipped with a small two-stroke engine, a hydraulic transmission and electronic controls. It was capable of turning on a single point and changing its ground clearance… perfect for dodging kids in the parking lot!
