This is how the moon looked like in 1885 when James Hall Nasmyth and James Carpenter educated their eye with the help of a telescope “not only in respect to comprehending the general character of the moon’s surface, but also to examining minutely its marvellous details under every variety of phase, in the hope of rightly understanding their true nature, as well as the causes which had produced them.” This and more on the cosmical origin of the planets of the solar system, on existence and non-existence of a lunar atmosphere can be read in their wonderful book “The moon considered as a planet, a world, and a satellite”
More education for the eyes was done in 1966 by the Five ‘Lunar Orbiter’ missions. With the help of these tools:
within a few days 99% of the Moon was photographed with a resolution of 60 m or better:
and within 3 weeks they were transmitted to Earth as analog data after onboard scanning of the original film into a series of strips. The data were written to magnetic tape and also to film.
In 2007, with the help of the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) began a process to convert the Lunar Orbiter Images directly from the original Ampex FR-900 analog video recordings of the spacecraft data to digital image format, a change which provided vastly improved resolution over the original images released in the 1960s. Due to the state of the art marvellous details of the moon currently looking like this:

It’s ready to use & the unit comes with complete written instructions for proper use!
Currently sold out but i guess there will be some left in the past
“…the term affordance refers to the perceived and actual properties of the thing, primarily those fundamental properties that determine just how the thing could possibly be used. [...] Affordances provide strong clues to the operations of things. Plates are for pushing. Knobs are for turning. Slots are for inserting things into. Balls are for throwing or bouncing. When affordances are taken advantage of, the user knows what to do just by looking: no picture, label, or instruction needed.”

‘How can you use it when it’s useless’ is a quote from John Cage picked from the talk with Wim Mertens “So that each person is in charge of himself.”from A Dip in the Lake hosted at UbuWeb.

Prof. Oberth entwarf einen Raumanzug lange bevor irgendein Mensch in den Raum vorstossen konnte:
At the 1970 World Expo in Osaka, consumer electronics maker Sanyo demonstrated their vision for the future by showcasing a series of appliances they thought would populate the home of tomorrow. Included was the Ultrasonic Bath, a pod-like human washing machine that cleans, massages and dries the user in a fully automated 15-minute process.
