gun and gunpowder were invented more than 150 years ago....in fact, 150 years ago, that'd be 1859...in a few years, or at the same time you have repeating rifles (WInchester lever actions and pump actions), very good pistols (Colt Army anyone?) marksmen, and so on... from 1850s onward, i'll say smokeless powder, metallic cartridge cases, improved ballistics, semiautomatic operation of rifles, first true Machine Guns, which spawned the SMG class and the Assault Rifle class
RailRoads, invented by the end of 1700s, came into widespread use in the mid 1800s, so i'll give that to you.
winged flight
rotary flight,
rocket propulsion systems-a continuation of rockets from the times of ancients, namely Chinese and French designs....but only in the mid 20th century did rocket propulsion give lift to space exploration, so its a 50/50 thing IMO
computers...modern computers, yeah i'll agree, since they came about after ballistics computers and controls from fire control (Naval ships and RADAR)
i'll say Radio/Radar systems,
sliced bread
printing presses were around before Benjamin Franklin, so that goes beyond 150 years
telephone and telegraph systems were just around that time
internal combustion engine-without the development of these, we'd still be relying on either steam engines or electrical motors
electric grids (AC versus DC lol)
Tesla.

Factories have been around since the dawn of the Industrial age :P lol. IE, early 1800s right before your 150 year mark :) EFFICIENT factories, or automated factories, sure :)
thongs...it can be argued that the ancient man had thongs for underwear or for working around water....a prime example is the loincloth, and the stuff used by the Japanese in their Feudal era for working on boats and around water...however, modern swimwear and lingerie, i'll say yeah in the last 150 years, they';ve become so varied and scandalously sexy :D lol
hell, modern fabric'll take the title IMO for making it much cheaper to produce quality fiber and fabric items...for the everyday person, not just the rich and affluent.
