Episode Summary

60's Tech
The sixties were one groovy decade. "Modern Marvels: 60's Tech" will take you on a wild ride of the technological happenings that helped shape the decade. Television got a whole lot better. We'll see how color replaced black and white. We'll explore the advent of satellite broadcasting. And we'll look at the camera that beamed man's first steps on the moon. It was a decade of radical changes - the transistor radio became your personal listening device, computers became less intimidating, dialing your telephone now meant pressing buttons, and your watch became a piece of electronics. We'll see how all that happened. We'll take the Mustang, the ultimate 60's car, for a spin. For fun, we'll get inside slot car racing, the etch-a-sketch, the superball, and lava lamps. The decade gave us quite a technological rush-- with the introduction of concert sound, psychedelic light shows and the birth of the rock festival. So this time around, just turn on and tune in, no need to drop out.moreless
