I grew up watching Star Trek reruns. Amazing how many of the cool gadgets on the show have become everyday objects for us now.
The Communicator– aka the flip phone.
Of course this model was outdated by the time Star Trek TNG aired. We do have hands-free, but I’m guessing the tap your shirt communicators will be on the market soon.
Lt. Uhura’s communications thingy—aka The Bluetooth headset.
I was never real sure if this was just a fancy communicator that tapped into all frequencies or if it did some sort of translation, too. I’m sure there is a Star Trek gadget guide out their somewhere that would tell me.
The Tricorder—aka the hand held computer.
Spock thought he was so cool, but we had him beat with PDAs. He would probably show a little emotion for a smart phone.
All this stuff is neat, but what I really wanted was …
What SciFi gadget is on your wish list?
