Technology and engineering has advanced so far, what do you guys think are some true engineering/technological marvels, I feel that if we can harness the power of our sun/look into renewable energy, we can really reach the pinnacle of this generation adn set a benchmark for the next generations

Heres My list, I`ll start us off, Please post in this format

2.Video(not Compulsory)


1.Lexus Hoverboard

Used superconductors on tracks to create a levitating effect, probably the first working hoverboard in the world. That means 0 Resistance/0 Friction. However needs magnetic rails, so thats a downside to it.

2. Mercedes Benz S-Class

The pinnacle of the automotive industry, the lovechild of safety, design and technology, probably 4-3 years ahead of its time, AUDI and BMW struggle to keep up with the S-class

3. Concorde

The first ever supersonic airline, probably the last, very shortlived, crash after its first launch I believe, we should definitely reinvest in the Concorde

4.Jatiya Sangsad

I did a uni peice on this once, the buildings architecture is oblivious to the naked eye, but probably one of the most beautiful parliaments in the world as of today

5.Iphone

We all have one, back in 2007, the iphones release shattered mobile phone markets around the globe and singlehandedly killed Nokia/Blackberry

6.F-22 Raptor

Even though it is 21 Years, the worldest greatest/most advanced technical stealth fighter can take down the entire Bangladesh Airforce with just one aircraft, no other aircraft in the world has come close to matching the F-22 Stealth Technology and System and I doubt one ever will.
1 F22 can take out over 20-10 MiGs/Sukhoi 37 without even getting detected by Radar

7. The Jeep
Probably, instrumental to the allies success in WW2, the jeep ensured that infantry were not slaughtered by machine gun fire, and provided aid to soldiers to and fro the battlefield, the jeep is still sold today, and arguably remains one of the greatest inventions by man

Why is the Lexus Hoverboard smoking? Is the battery overheating?

Liquid Nitrogen, to cool down the superconductors, so they keep on levitating

Fiber-optic tech for communicating faster.

Doesn't look like that to the naked eye. A layperson would believe that is heating up and about to explode.

They should sort things out in their marketing department.
