    Used to model the decay of the US nuclear arsenal, analyze financial data, and render 3D medical images in real-time; the Roadrunner was the first computer to reach a sustained performance of 1 petaflop using two different microprocessors. (one thousand trillion floating point operations per second).
  • Apple Retina Display

    Apple Retina Display
    The first being introduced during the iPhone 4's launch, with a screen resolution of up to 400 pixels-per-inch, Retina displays approached the limit of pixel visibility to the human eye. In addition to the IDS technology added for more color spectrum, the retina display started to become a standard in future apple products.

    TKD Demonstrates a 2TB Hard Drive on a Single 3.5" HDD Platter
    TKD, a $7.8 billion dollar Japanese electronic manufacturing company just created a technique that could cram terabytes of data onto one hard drive platter. Although the HAMR (heat-assisted magnetic recording) was already created back in 2006 they achieved a new form of technology that would later be used in the following years for commercial and consumer related products.
  • Apple Watch

    Apple Watch
    With technology becoming more easily accessible and smaller, people wanted more. Low and behold the apple watch, that does far more than simply reading the time. Incorporating a version of Apple's iOS operating system, as well as sensors for environmental and health monitoring, Tim Cook's idea of the Apple Watch was to design compatibility to be incorporated into the Apple products with ease. Almost a million units were ordered on the day of release.
