Two of the technologies highlighted – winglets and improved design for car seats – are featured in the agency's Spinoff 2013 book.

"NASA technologies improve our everyday lives, including providing us with safer, cleaner modes of transportation, supporting millions of passengers and packages traveling by air and ground everyday with efficiencies, comfort and safety," said Daniel Lockney, NASA's Technology Transfer Program executive. "The program works to bring the cutting-edge technologies developed for NASA missions down to Earth."

NASA's Technology Transfer Program is charged with finding the widest possible applications of agency technology. Through partnerships and licensing agreements with industry, the program ensures that NASA's investments in pioneering research find secondary applications that benefit the economy, create jobs and improve quality of life.
