It didn't seem like that long ago that I posted about spotting a picture of a "boilerplate" Orion capsule and the feeling of it being in the "real world." (In looking for it, I realised that it indeed wasn't as long ago as I had been wondering...) Now, a much larger piece of new hardware has also been rolled out, in the form of the Ares I-X test rocket. Of course, it still seems to be an open question as to whether plans are going to change before there's a chance to even learn if this test rocket, whatever it does, will be an accurate prediction of how the larger booster stage to go in the "real" one works... but it does look quite impressive.
