This episode of Modern Marvels should really show people that many of us take the technology of hydraulics for granted. All of our modern cards have some sort of hydraulics system - power steering for instance. Don't forget all of our other transportation methods, buses, trains, planes, etc.
One of the more obvious places hydraulics are used would be construction equipment. You probably won't be able to find too many cranes or bulldozers without some sort of system of hydraulics.
