I'm sure there must be some others out there that are  modern in their imagery, but I've never seen any.

The arms if the British Interplanetary Society (...anyone?) are meant to be based on a stylised picture of a spaceship.

Not sure I'd have worked that out if they hadn't told me.

Interesting to see my employer's arms on the third page of recent grants.

http://www.college-of-arms.gov.uk/news-grants/grants/item/22-university-of-lincoln

There's a modern(ish) element to the badge, if not the arms themselves - a cog (sorry, "Annulet embattled on the outer edge") to represent the engineering history of the city of Lincoln.
