Seriously, whenever I use a flip phone the first thing I always think of is Star Trek :D
THIS SHIT AIN’T RIGHT
STAR TREK DIDN’T PREDICT THE FUTURE FOOL
IT CREATED THE FUTURE
IT INSPIRED THE FUTURE
THE REASON THESE THINGS EXIST IS BECAUSE STAR TREK MADE PEOPLE WANT THEM TO HAPPEN
STAR TREK IS THE FUTURE
Dont forget about automatic doors
People are currently trying to make tricorders as well. So far it can monitor heart functions.
oh an hyposprays are in the works, too
That’s all cool but where is my freaking replicator?
Food replicators are a real thing too! Well sort of… 3D printers are used in some nursing homes to print out food that looks real but is softer, because the elders don’t want to eat mush but they can’t eat proper food anymore. Give it a few years and we’ll be able to print anything with the right ingredients.
Let’s say it again: STAR TREK INSPIRED THE FUTURE.
When Star Trek first aired they left a lot companies feeling extremely nervous, and if I remember correctly, the producers did in fact receive several inquiries regarding where they had heard of certain things (that were at the time in super secret development). :)
