Go Back In Time With GE And See Some of the Awesome Ladies Responsible For Today’s Tech

This is Katharine Burr Blodgett, the first woman to get a PhD in physics from Cambridge in addition to being the first woman scientist to join the GE Research Laboratory. She’s known widely as the inventor of “invisible glass.” “But most glass is invisible anyway,” I hear you say. “It’s glass.” Well you can back that assumption right up, because KBB here figured out how to make glass mostly non-reflective and therefore, yes, nearly invisible.

Behind the cut you’ll find another awesome lady hailing from GE’s past. This one worked with jet engines. Jet engines, you guys.

11 Gorgeous Photos From GE’s Eye-Catching Instagram Page

Sometimes you’ve just got to take a break from whatever you’re doing to look at some cool pictures. We spend all day on the Internet here at The Mary Sue, so we know that better than most. Baby animals are all well and good, but to avoid a cute overload I’d suggest turning to GE’s Instagram page for some tech-themed eye candy. Among the gems to be found there: Several pictures that look like they’re right of a futuristic sci-fi movie, even though they’re of things being made today; Mr. Smith from The Matrix; a robot barista (don’t worry, it’s friendly); and a special appearance from Mr. T (kinda). Take a look at some of our favorites behind the jump, and then follow GE on Instagram for more.

Agent Smith is Back, Has Job Shilling for GE Software

I’m not going to leave you in suspense. There’s no joke about humans being a disease, plague, cancer, or virus in here. They make a different reference, which I guess is fair, if less in character.

Hugo Weaving, thank you for existing.

In the Battle Between Talking Trains and Talking Cars, Who Would Win?

We’re all familiar with Maximum Overdrive, right? The movie where inanimate objects come alive and a bunch of trucks make Emilio Estevez pump gas for them? No? Well, I’m terribly sorry to have burdened your mind with that knowledge. You know, if we have to create intelligent machines that are going to fight something… could they fight each other? Maybe for our affection?

Okay, in the fight for our affection between talking trains and talking cars, I think there’s a clear winner.
