Few marvels are as modern as the fantastic array of electronic devices interwoven into our everyday lives. See how, in just a few decades, they've gone from non-existent to ubiquitous.
- For over a decade, MODERN MARVELS has brought grand stories to life.
- The ultimate celebration and investigation of engineering excellence.
- For sheer processing power, today's kid's toys rival the original supercomputers
Celebrating ingenuity, invention and imagination brought to life on a grand scale, MODERN MARVELS® tells the fascinating stories of the doers, dreamers and sometime-schemers who created everyday items, technological breakthroughs and man-made wonders.
Track the very modern history of digital technology from the first high-speed electronic computer of the 1940s, used to calculate cannon trajectories, to today's alphabet soup of personal tech: DVD, CD, PDA, HDTV, PVR. We can't imagine our current lives without these devices, yet just thirty years ago personal computing, much less pocket computing, was almost as rare as private space flight today.
In those early days, no-one could foresee where DIGI-TECH would take us. This episode of MODERN MARVELS gazes into the crystal ball — and visits places like MIT's Media Lab — to see what wonders our rapidly approaching future holds.
Look back, look forward, look sharp, with MODERN MARVELS: DIGI-TECH!
