Google fails to show a single result for the instrument periscope for a search on 'periscope'

This was something I used to think and wonder for many years. Will a day come when search engines will get so swamped with populist technology such as smartphones, applications, games, etc., that fundamental and scientific terms would get overshadowed in SERPs with these "cool" results? Will future students be bombarded with more of this cool and commercial "juice" rather than core mathematical and scientific concepts?

Yesterday, Google did not show even one result for the periscope instrument on its SERP for the query periscope. Thankfully, Bing and Yandex still show some results for the instrument.

The same story repeats for the query tumbler.
