  We didn't have the technology to convert hydrogen for a water driven car, perhaps it is the technology that is screwed not the technologists.
  Where did the steel come from, obviously they were aware of how to smelt iron,copper,etc.
  As far as I can see science is existing in a vacuum, a vacuum of incorrect premises.

There have interesting toys throughout history, some of them rather large 
like the temple gadgets invented by Hero of Alexandria, but lacking the 
supporting technology they could never be more than interesting curiosities.

The Romans had a primitive steam engine but could never translate it into 
heavy machinery because they did not have steel mills.

Technology does not exist in a vacuum.
