Melbourne, Australia, 1987⠀

The magazine 'TV Week', first published almost 60 years ago, continues to publish weekly, just as the residents of Ramsay Street continue to fall in and out to this day.⠀

30 years ago today, Australia watched as Jane Harris and Henry Mitchell (Annie Jones and Craig McLachlan) threaten the happiness of Scott Robinson and Charlene Mitchell (Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue) on 'Neigbours'.⠀

Cupcake CNC 3D printer by MakerBot⠀

Made by Gavin Smith in Sydney, Australia, 2009.⠀

When the ‘Cupcake CNC’ was made in 2009 the concept of printing in 3D was foreign to many people. ⠀

As a new technology it had many flaws but still managed to capture the imagination of a range of users. ⠀

At the time of its release this printer was the only accessible and affordable option for individuals and community groups with limited technical skill or knowledge.⠀

As Australia continues a national #marriageequality debate, the Love Is... exhibition at the Powerhouse invites us to consider that throughout history, concepts of marriage have shifted in response to social, cultural, economic and political changes ❤️🌈💍 This image is from the marriage of @alexandra.joel and Phillip Mason in 1979 📷 @alexandra.joel #loveismaas #powerhousemuseum #marriageequality

Celebrating World Space Week!⠀

Replica Manned Manoeuvring Unit (MMU)⠀
Made in Colorado, USA, 1986.⠀

At the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, we love an international celebration of science and technology.⠀

Behold the the Manned Manoeuvring Unit, representing the most sophisticated development in the Twentieth Century of technology designed to provide personal astronaut propulsion and independent manoeuvrability for space operations.⠀

Nicknamed the 'Buck Rogers backpack' after the 1920s sci-fi character, the device allowed astronauts to work outside the Space Shuttle without the need for safety tethers.⠀

See it in the #Space exhibition on now at the #PowerhouseMuseum.⠀

Costume used by Annette Kellerman⠀
Made in United States, 1920-1940.⠀

Part of a substantial collection of costumes and props used by Annette Kellerman (1886-1975). ⠀

Kellerman became an international celebrity as an endurance swimmer, an entertainer of the vaudeville stage and a star of American silent films. She played a key role in popularising the one-piece swimsuit for women.⠀

See it in the exhibition 'Million Dollar Mermaid: Annette Kellerman' on now at the #PowerhouseMuseum. ⠀

Meccano model truck and van, Made 1980-2000⠀

Meccano, the children’s construction toy, was invented by Frank Hornby in England, in 1901. ⠀

Throughout most of the twentieth century Meccano was exported around the world, intending to interest boys in engineering and ‘to foster clean mindedness, truthfulness, ambition and initiative in boys’. ⠀
It was also used in engineering firms for model building and by inventors for working out ideas, just as computers are used today.⠀

By the 1960s rival plastic construction toys, which were cheaper and aimed at both boys and girls, took away much of the Meccano market.⠀

The fact that Meccano reached a world wide audience, before the advent of the internet and social media, is testimony to the value of the product.⠀

See it on display in #Experimentations at the #PowerhouseMuseum

‘Skeleton Type’ table model telephone⠀

Made by Ericsson in Stockholm, Sweden, c 1910.⠀

One of the first telephones to incorporate microphone and receiver elements into a single handset. Also one of the first free-standing telephones designed for a table top. No more standing next to the wall to take the call. Over a million units were sold during its production from 1892 till 1929. ⠀

See it on display in #Interface at #PowerhouseMuseum - an exhibition that examines how design has been applied to information technology products; and about how a handful of companies made complicated technology appealing and easy to use. ⠀
