The Future Has Arrived
Remember when you were promised all those amazing future tech innovations? Just around the corner was supposed to be a shining technology utopia with flying cars, personal space travel to distant galaxies, and bio-implantable cell phones. It’s almost disappointing enough to make you sit at home and watch old episodes of “Space 1999″.

Don’t lose hope! An amazing glimpse of this promised future has just arrived at ThinkGeek in the form of the Cube Virtual Laser Keyboard. This tiny device laser-projects a keyboard on any flat surface… you can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds. It really is true future magic at its best. You’ll be turning heads the moment you pull this baby from your pocket and use it to compose an e-mail on your iPad, iPhone or laptop. With 63 keys and and full size QWERTY layout the Laser Forex Virtual Keyboard can approach typing speeds of a standard keyboard… in a size a little larger than a matchbook.

Rare 1953 Keaton Music Typewriter

Gorgeous vintage device pops up on Etsy.

However, this 1950s Keaton Music Typewriter has much to admire. The original version was patented by San Francisco inventor Robert H. Keaton in 1936, and further refinement saw units like the one featured here hit the market in the 1950s.

Exact production numbers are unknown, but estimates for the number of machines still in existence range from 6 to two dozen. Jack’s Red Barn on Etsy is selling one for $5000(the typewriters were originally $225).

For more information, see this 1993 Issue of ETCetera, the official journal of the Early Typewriter Collectors’ Association.

Hubble Space Telescope

The famous telescope was named after U.S. astronomer Edwin Hubble, whose observations of variable stars in distant galaxies confirmed that the universe was expanding and gave support to the Big Bang theory.

After a long delay due to the Challenger disaster in 1986, the Hubble Space Telescope shot into orbit on April 24, 1990, piggybacking aboard the Discovery space shuttle. Since its launch, Hubble has reshaped our v­iew of space, with scientists writing thousands of papers based on the telescope’s clear-eyed findings on important stuff like the age of the universe, gigantic ­black holes or what­ stars look like in the throes of death.

Hubble is the only telescope designed to be serviced in space by astronauts. Between 1993 and 2002, four missions repaired, upgraded, and replaced systems on the telescope, but a fifth mission was canceled on safety grounds following the Columbia disaster. However, after spirited public discussion, NASA administrator Mike Griffin approved one final servicing mission, completed in 2009. The telescope is now expected to function until at least 2014. Its scientific successor, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), is to be launched in 2018 or possibly later.
