I thought the only thing we got from the Roswell crash was velcro?

Resistors made during that time frame, too? To go from vaccuum tubes to tiny little resistors... hmm...
In 1880, the brothers Pierre Curie and Jacques Curie predicted and demonstrated piezoelectricity using tinfoil, glue, wire, magnets, and a jeweler's saw. They showed that crystals of tourmaline, quartz, topaz, cane sugar, and Rochelle salt (sodium potassium tartrate tetrahydrate) generate electrical polarization from mechanical stress. Quartz and Rochelle salt exhibited the most piezoelectricity. Twenty natural crystal classes exhibit direct piezoelectricity.

As far as Piezoelectricity goes, from the link in intelgurls post
Also, why does the American Antigravity site persist with the lifters? They are clearly not antigravity devices. As testing them in vacuum have proven.

maybe I'm stating the obvious, but wouldn't the only things that we could've possibly gotten from Roswell, are things that the military has invented...
Does anyone know if that book "The Day After Roswell," written by Corso, was accurate? It sounds like he has a lot of credibility, but he might have still made it all up

There are other technologies supposidly derived from Roswell:
aerodynamics to some extent,
liquid crystal and touch display
lasers and holographics
there are others related technologies rumoured to come from the Roswell Crash.
