Currently browsing the 1950s Popular Sciences, ran across this:

http://books.google.com/books?id=Iy0DAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PP1&pg=RA1-PA278#v=onepage&q&f=true

You'll have to scroll down a little to see it, it's the bottom right corner of page 278, the page the link above *should* take you to.


Just thought it was interesting....


On a side note, my addiction to reading PopSci and PopMech back issues over the last couple of years has led to a "projects I wannna do" clipping/notes set that is essentially impossible to ever, ever Ever EVER complete (barring science-fiction-grade life extension discoveries).

Which is a good thing.

Interesting that many of those products have stood the test of time and are still available today.

Hilarious. Seems like a repurposed sewing machine pedal.

How ironic is it that someone invents a device that sucks in 7500 files a day to figure out better ways to spray pesticides? LOL
