i saw this one documentary about how star trek influenced a lot of tools such as the MRI, measuring o2 in blood using a laser….etc

here's some cool things that star trek proficied that are coming true and in development. can you guys think of other things that are coming true for future tech that was just a dream 50 years ago?

multi touch screen




virtual room

holograms



ear phones



biojector (needleless injection)

Someone
The Biojector 2000 Needlefree Injection Management System delivers medications parenterally without a needle. Instead, the Biojector uses compressed carbon dioxide (C02) as a safe power source to eject medication through a micro-orifice within a fraction of a second. This delivery action effectively penetrates the skin and delivers the medication into the patient's tissue.

Whoa Trippy. I'm still totally amazed by cell phones, really.
That medical life saving stuff is all cool *I guess* but I'm still waiting for my hoverboard… ^_^; (that was sarcasm)

Non-kinetic energy weapons. Eg. the microwave beam, currently in service.

Computers suck. :c

Defence update
BAE Systems is currently testing a remotely controlled, semi-autonomous armored vehicle known as “Black Knight”, designed as an early prototype of an Unmanned Armed Combat Vehicle. This robotic armored vehicle is equipped with a turret mounting a 30mm gun, and coaxial machine gun, derived from the Bradley combat vehicle.

The Black Knight Unmanned Combat Vehicle can be controlled from the commander's station of a Bradley. Gun and turret position, as well as information from the Black Knight's Commander's Independent Viewer (CIV), and the Improved Bradley Acquisition System (IBAS) can be seen on a the commander's display. Limited autonomous functions are applied to the turret systems, including the ability for the turret slewing to a cue from the Commander's Independent Viewer. When dismounted operation is required, soldiers can continue and operate the robotic vehicle through the Dismounted Control Device (DCD). Mobility enhancements completed in 2006 include advanced robotic technology for autonomous mobility. This capability allows the Black Knight to plan routes, maneuver on the planned route, and avoid obstacles - all without operator intervention.

In short, remote controlled tank.

Most of this stuff people have made fun of, saying it's not real. Well, that's at least what they said years back… Most people probably didn't even think some of these things could even be real…

I think the touch screen is AMAZING… O_O

This year, school's full of BS!!!
