How about simplified kidney dialysis? The GPS satellites that provide half the functionality of your smartphone? The filter in your Brita water pitcher? And how about memory foam, dude? Memory foam! And if none of that stuff lights your candle, there’s always the “Fail to Launch” button that brings up yet another way that NASA changed your life. The Mohawk thing is just a bonus, although a welcome one.
