Space Age Army
Many of the weapons and systems in the book Our Space Age Army were short lived, or total dead ends. This little vehicle became the M114 series of armored recon vehicles.
The vehicle was supposed to be a low flying car. Not enough lift to power ration and replaced by helicopters.
Other technologies, like television turned out to be very important. Here it's a huge model, with a backpack. Now of course, they are little cell phones!
This long range ground mounted television required a Jeep to carry it and at least two men to operate it.
