4423 roseyfae Haven't seen it mentioned yet so, 3D movies. The first one popped up around 1915 and the first major commercial film in the format was The Power of Love in 1922. If you included stereoscopic tech it goes back to the late 1800's.
1948 lucid808 Air rifles were invented in 1779. [The Girandoni Air Rifle](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Girandoni_air_rifle) was a .46 cal, had a capacity of 22 round balls that were gravity fed into the chamber. It used no gun powder (so no smoke to give away position) and had a high rate of fire, much faster than traditional muzzle loader. The buttstock would hold up to 800 psi of compressed air, which took about 1500 strokes from a hand pump to fill. It was powerful enough to put a hole through a 1" pine board from 100 yards away, so it could cause significant damage by a skilled marksman. It was used in the Napoleonic Wars, and was famously carried by Lewis and Clark during their expedition across North America.

2515 Antonskarp Color movies! Color movies actually predates audio movies. However, color film was more expensive to buy and develop than black and white, but people weren't willing to pay extra for color so it wasn't economically sound to shoot in color. Hell, not even the wizard of Oz turned a profit. There are actually a few color silent films out there, but since people actually were willing to pay extra for audio movies that seems like it was invented earlier. It wasn't, it just got popular earlier! EDIT: Some examples. I'm not talking about black and white film being hand painted in a variety of colors. I'm talking about actual colors being captured by the camera. Here's a short clip by pioneer Edward Raymond Turner from 1902. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V0Vc5iRoLY Can you imagine that this clip is from the same year as A Trip to the Moon? Granted, it doesn't amazing, but it looks real. Here's a clip from a 1926 silent film with intertitles and all starring Douglas Fairbanks, but shot in glorious Technicolor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwa2578IxkM
7789 fart_shaped_box Digital distribution of video games. It has been around since ~~the *Atari 2600*, where the method used was a telephone line~~ the *Intellivision* in 1981, where the games could be downloaded from a cable TV channel. Edit: I have been corrected. While the Atari 2600 was the earliest released console to support this, the Intellivision's PlayCable was the first service.
