Nondairy creamer too.
The audio cassette invented.
Acrylic paint and permanent-press fabric invented.
BASIC (an early computer language) invented by John George Kemeny and Tom Kurtz.
Astroturf, CDs, and NutraSweet invented.
Kevlar invented by Stephanie Louise Kwolek.
Electronic fuel injection for cars invented.
First video game console.
The first handheld calculator.
