10 things that only existed in sci-fi movies (by @creaxnv)

  1. 10 Things that only existed in Sci-fi Movies @creaxnv
  2. But are now Real LG VSCAN
  3. #2 GESTURAL INTERFACES
  4. #2 GESTURAL INTERFACES Gestural interfaces got popular due to the Minority Report movie (2002). A few years later Microsoft released Kinect. And now you can pretend to be Tom Cruise at home with the LEAP motion.
  5. #4 TOUCH SCREENS #3 HOUSEHOLD ROBOTS
  6. #3 HOUSEHOLD ROBOTS The Jetsons (1962) and many other sci-fi films and series depicted robots to aid us in our household. JIBO is a robot that does just that… without the wheels.
  7. #4 SELF-DRIVING CARS
  8. #4 SELF-DRIVING CARS Not looking as neat as Kitt from Knight Rider (1982) but Google’s self driving car does the trick. It even lacks a steering wheel so it must be driving on its own.
  9. #5 SMOG FILLED CITIES
  10. #5 SMOG FILLED CITIES The movie Blade Runner (1982) depicted a polluted world with lots of smog which blocked the sunlight. Nowadays in Beijing the situation is very similar. Even so extreme that the government had to install a virtual sunset
  11. #6 MEAL IN A CUP
  12. #6 MEAL IN A CUP Wall-E (2008) featured the people of the future as fat, lazy and endlessly sipping on a meal in a cup. Today you can buy Soylent. A powder that you can mix into a shake and has all the nutrition you need to get through the day.
  13. #7 GROWING ORGANS
  14. #7 GROWING ORGANS In the 2005 movie The Island, people are being cloned to be harvested for organs. Fortunately today we have found other ways to grow organs.
  15. #8 SMART PROSTHETICS
  16. #8 SMART PROSTHETICS In 1980, audiences gasped when Luke Skywalker lost his hand. Luckily in a galaxy far far away they had some nifty prosthetics. But today, mind controlled prosthetics already exist and are getting more and more common.
  17. #9 FULL BODY SCANNERS
  18. #9 FULL BODY SCANNERS Total Recall (1990) is full of iconic moments. One of them is the scene with the body scanner. Nowadays, just like in the movie, upon arrival or departure at an airport, you are screened by similar devices.
  19. #10 LANDING ON A COMET
  20. #10 LANDING ON A COMET In 1998 Armageddon was a real blockbuster. 15 years later the ESA lands the PHILAE spacecraft on a comet. On its head and after several bounces. Just like the Bruce Willis’ crew.
