Einstein's work resulted in the production of the atom bomb. Since then, we've started using lasers in consumer devices (lasers use quantum mechanics.) We've also started using new cool materials. But as for subatomic physics--the kind that we're doing in particle accelerators--what have we actually done with these exotic subatomic particles? Why don't we have flying cars yet?

Maybe not so recent and maybe not very "exotic" particles, but there are e.g. electron microscopes and positron emission tomography.
