Task 1: Possibilities with Digital Technologies


After muddling around for some time looking at various sites and Youtube I stumbled on this page about NASA which catalogues some of the fascinating technological advancements that are used in everyday settings, but which had their origins in space research by the scientists at NASA in collaboration with industry specialists and business. For example the invention of LED technology has lead to the development of medical devices such as “WARP10” which is used to provide non-invasive medical first aid and pain relief to soldiers on the field and to provide relief to patients with serious medical conditions. Another example has its application in the home – the cordless vacuum cleaner, which has its origins in a portable self-contained drill NASA had developed to take core samples. Such fascinating advances and more to come for the future generations!
