Top Most AMAZING SCIFI Gadgets That Currently Exist!

Top Most AMAZING SCIFI Gadgets That Currently Exist! 

From billboards with facial recognition to paper-thin phones here are 10 SCIFI Gadgets that actually exist in real life. 

10-The Sigma Universal Translator 

When humans travel to the farthest reaches of the universe where no one has gone before one of the most important gadgets they need is the ability to communicate with any alien species they encounter instead of showing how long it would take to learn a brand new language sci-fi offers up a universal translator that automatically converts any language into your own once a flight of fancy increasing computer power is actually making these devices of reality, of course, we haven't yet discovered an alien race that we need to communicate with so it's hard to test it out for sure but there are plenty of languages on earth the ability to instantly translate one language to another without needing a human translator would be incredibly useful right unless you work as a translator for the UN now this year it has to become a reality the Ilya is a self-contained device that doesn't need to be connected to the Internet I know right and it's able to translate in real-time between English Spanish Japanese and Mandarin it's designed to help travelers easily communicate with people in countries they visit and from all accounts it does the job really well it's not quite perfected yet but soon enough we'll be able to talk in any language without sounding like an idiot or having to quickly leaf through books and trying to remember our sixth grade, French. 

9-Personalized Billboards 

One of the potentially frightening ideas from sci-fi movies of the past was the idea that you could walk through a shopping Centre or down a street and the advertising billboards were actually able to recognize you and speak directly to you they would offer products that were specifically targeted to your demographic at the time these ideas seemed intrusive and wildly futuristic but they're becoming all the more common now this started in simple ways such as installing a smoke alarm at a bus shelter and when it detected smoke putting an anti-smoking ad on the billboard nearby this is now developed further with some places in the U.S. getting fitted with facial recognition technology to identify characteristics like your age and gender so you can be shown ads specifically geared to you because we need more help knowing where to spend our money of course almost all of us carry smart devices with us wherever we go now and it's possible for companies to monitor our location as well as the government and if they want to send us messages or offers related to nearby stores it won't be long until most shop fronts and advertising spaces will be reacting to who is looking at them which could be hugely beneficial for all involved I don't know about you but I still think smart billboards are creepy who knows who else is using them. 


Drones as we now know them have been a part of sci-fi worlds from as far back as 1989 when a news drone was featured and Back to the Future Part 2 nowadays they are of course one of the most popular gadgets around the world and they're used for all kinds of things from real estate to recording concerts whether it be recreational video production or even warfare to reduce the risk to human life drones are arguably one of the most important and influential devices of this decade just imagine how they will develop into the next the idea has been around for a long time but it was only in the past 20 years that technology caught up and made them possible sure our V aircraft have been around for decades but the first mass-produced drones available to the public that could operate for long periods of time and reliably hold camera equipment in place were recently launched in 2010 since then millions have been sold around the world regulators are scrambling to ensure they are being used in the right ways and not first spying on your neighbor or top-secret military bases. 

7-Power laces 

Another futuristic gadget that was first featured and back to the future were the self-tying shoelaces ever since that movie they have been the second most desired product after the hoverboard of course but have just now started to become a reality Nikes hyper adapt sneakers are the world's first power lacing Footwear and they're currently in the process of being released for sale around the world they are designed to help say time by not needing to worry about tying simple knots and do it in style as soon as your foot is inside the sneaker a pressure sensor detects it and automatically tightens the laces two buttons on the side allow you to tighten and loosen the laces which ensures you get a perfect fit with no sneaky loops hanging out this future look and functionality comes at a cost though Nike aren't marketing them at sportswear customers instead they are considered concept where I had a price of 720 dollars they aren't really for everyone just yet but as the technology becomes tested and more prevalent the price should hopefully drop. 

6-Bionic suits 

Of course you need a bionic suit what if you have to move something heavy or fight a robot war or end up on a planet with much higher gravity than ours then the only way to be able to carry an object is by using a bionic suit to work together with our muscles and skeletal structure to give extra strength and support who doesn't want that better yet what if you could help people who couldn't walk spurred on by the desire to help paralyzed patients and the elderly gain more independent movement various companies have begun to develop Bionic suits as a solution McLaren the Formula One car manufacturer recently entered the field after being approached by one of their billionaire customers to design something to give him more mobility he apparently had a weakened sternum and rib cage and with half a million dollars on the table McLaren’s applied technologies division came up with project invincible made from carbon fiber and Dyneema a material used in bulletproof vests they made a breastplate for him that provided all of the strength and support he needed to get back to the usual day-to-day activities of a busy billionaire. 

5-Self-driving cars 

Self-driving vehicles are supposed to be the way of the future plus they're usually electric you can just program wherever you want to go and travel to your destination while you just relax instead of having to concentrate on the road due to the computational power required to make the calculations needed for a safe and automated trip the development of self-driving systems has been driven by tech companies as opposed to traditional car manufacturers the development goes hand-in-hand with battery technology and it's perhaps unsurprising that the ubers apples and Google's of the world have been pushing the sci-fi idea the company pushing the limits the most though is undoubtedly Tesla who has already put self-driving cars on the road at the same time as powering them with batteries despite being a relatively recent entry in the car market they are now on the verge of being the highest valued car company in the world and while they don't produce as many vehicles as the others they are leading the way and futuristic car tech true they've had some snafus but we're almost there. 

4-Medical scanner 

When you're traveling to distant worlds to explore it's crucial that you have advanced medical technology to be able to diagnose any illnesses these have been imagined as handheld scanners or even smart hospital beds and the underlying tech behind them is now becoming a real possibility you know like in the movie passengers scandal broke IndieGoGo Records a couple of years ago with their device the Scout Warren is a cuff it would monitor the wearer's vital signs like temperature heart rate and blood pressure and some of the details directly to your smartphone the California company has a number of ideas in the pipeline that will take the functions far beyond what they are today so the device is seen in sci-fi are not too far off unfortunately support for the Scout has ended because of FDA regulations but it's only a matter of time until something is developed that can pass the strict approval process in the meantime smartwatches are providing very similar capabilities with users being able to monitor their health in a way that's never been possible before. 

3-Optical camouflage 

Both the Cleon’s and predator have an amazing piece of technology that militaries have been trying to get for a long time the ability to truly camouflage themselves so they become invisible they can bend light to project on the front what would be seen if the hidden object wasn't there after a number of unrealistic solutions like a rig of cameras along one side of a car and video screens on the other the US military set their sights on a battlefield ready solution in 2015 they sent out a request for companies that were developing stealth fabrics to get in touch with the purpose of developing an adaptive camouflage that could be used to steel people or vehicles and ideally without needing a massive power source at the time a number of companies stepped forward and claimed that they already had working prototypes that fulfilled the brief perfect companies like Canadian hyper stealth technology that also produces a wide range of traditional camouflage uniforms demonstrated a metamaterial camouflage solution to military scientists while no perfect optical camouflage has been demonstrated yet it's something that is thought to have been created but has been kept confidential at the moment it just costs too much for full-scale deployment. 

2-Paper thin display 

SCI-FI shows invented tablet computers and use them to control the ship and send information between people on other planets you don't need me to tell you that tablets became a reality a while back taking that a step further another screen technology that has been featured a lot is the idea of paper-thin screens that can roll up take up a tiny amount of space and provide perfect clarity and color the race between mobile phone manufacturers has brought screen technology to new levels in recent years OLED screens for example work without needing a backlight like LED screens require so they're much thinner it has been used in high-profile products like the recent iPhone 10 and the development of these screens has only just gotten started the CES tradeshow is a great place to see emerging tech like this and LG seems to be leading in the field with a truly revolutionary design a completely flexible screen that can be scrunched up rolled and retains a full HD image these types of screens will make tablets much more durable and their use on a wide scale is only just around the corner. 

1-Contact lens displays 

We've all seen the movies where soldiers have contact lenses that privately display information to them and also mission impossible but so far miniaturised viewing screens have merely been a pipe dream in the real world Google made their own trial into the area with the Google glass but their cost, as well as the style issues, meant that they never took off the real desire of this type of technology is the discretion and the Google glass was anything but however there are a number of companies have developed contact lenses within them and they are currently trying to bring them to market immaculate is one of these companies and they have brought their know-how in AR and VR to design a combination of contact lenses and glasses that are used to project a digital interface it can only be seen by the user and to anyone else it looks like they're just wearing sunglasses of course this is just the early stages of the ultimate aim lenses that can be used on their own.
