  • Satellites

    History's first artificial satellite, the Sputnik 1, was launched by the Soviet Union in 1957. Since then, thousands of satellites have been launched into orbit around the Earth; also some satellites, notably space stations, have been launched in parts and assembled in orbit. Artificial satellite originate from more than 50 countries and have used the satellite launching capabilities of ten nations.
  • Super conductors

    Super conductors
    Superconducting magnets are some of the most powerful electromagnets known. They are used in MRI and NMR machines, mass spectrometers, and the beam-steering magnets used in particle accelerators. They can also be used for magnetic separation, where weakly magnetic particles are extracted from a background of less or non-magnetic particles, as in the pigment industries.
    In the 1950s and 1960s, superconductors were used to build experimental digital computers using cryotron switches.

    Electonic calculator

    An electronic calculator (usually called simply a calculator) is a small, usually inexpensive electronic device used to perform the basic operations of arithmetic. Modern calculators are more portable than most computers, though most PDAs are comparable in size to handheld calculators.
    The first electronic calculator was created in the 1960s, building on the history of tools such as the abacus, developed around 2000 BC; and the mechanical calculator, developed in the 17th century.
  • Mouse

  • Notebook

    NotebookA laptop (notebook)[1][2] is a personal computer for mobile use.[3][4][5] A laptop integrates most of the typical components of a desktop computer, including a display, a keyboard, a pointing device (a touchpad, also known as a trackpad, and/or a pointing stick) and speakers into a single unit. A laptop is powered by mains electricity via an AC adapter, and can be used away from an outlet using a rechargeable battery.
  • Multitastking

    In computing, multitasking is a method where multiple tasks, also known as processes, share common processing resources such as a CPU. In the case of a computer with a single CPU, only one task is said to be running at any point in time, meaning that the CPU is actively executing instructions for that task.
  • Mobile Phone

    Mobile Phone
    A mobile phone (also called mobile, cellular telephone, cell phone, or hand phone is an electronic device used to make mobile telephone calls across a wide geographic area. vA mobile phone can make and receive telephone calls to and from the public telephone network which includes other mobiles and fixed-line phones across the world.

  • IBM atoms technology

    IBM atoms technology
    IBM scientists discovered how to move and position individual atoms on a metal surface using a scanning tunneling microscope. The technique was demonstrated in April 1990 at IBM's Almaden Research Center in San Jose, Calif., where scientists created the world's first structure: the letters "I-B-M" -- assembled one atom at a time. This will boost the nano technology
