With 60 days left in the backthestack.org campaign, we wondered about technologies of the 60s and what they could inspire for our smokestack retrofit plans. Here’s what we found:

1960
Halogen lamp invented.
Lasers perfected by Theodore Maiman.

1961
Valium invented.
Nondairy creamer too.

1962
The audio cassette invented.

1964
Acrylic paint and permanent-press fabric invented.
BASIC (an early computer language) invented by John George Kemeny and Tom Kurtz.

1965
Astroturf, CDs, and NutraSweet invented.
Kevlar invented by Stephanie Louise Kwolek.

1966
Electronic fuel injection for cars invented.
First video game console.

1967
The first handheld calculator.

1968
The computer mouse invented by Douglas Engelbart.

1969
Arpanet, the artificial heart, the ATM, and the bar-code scanner invented.

The Powerhouse spring benefit event happens Saturday, March 16, 2013 6-9ish. Get ready for the biggest party since the last time we had a Stomp and tore open the space-time continuum to reveal 1892 and 2092 concurrently. Huzzah, a Steampunk extravaganza featuring retro-futurist dress-up and other arcana. Expect: Ingestibles suitable for time travelers, gamma-protective googles, laughing-gas atlatls and rayguns, personal airships, that guy in a Fez again, and the signature standby to make it all ok—the Tesla Tonic.
