You might think that Star Wars is just a futuristic science fiction movie but some of the things that were present in the first few movies, which were made in the 1970s have actually come true in the 30-40 years since their release.
First of all, Luke’s bionic hand which looks very realistic in the films, have come to fruition. Earlier in 2015, a bionic hand was created for a 26 year old London resident who was born with out her hand. It is the most advanced bionic hand created so far, with complex motions like twisting and can even replicate lost feelings of touch.
Holograms too, of the “Help Me Obi-Wan Kenobi” fame, have become something of a reality. In Afghanistan, during the war, old statues of Buddha were destroyed. A chinese couple developed and tested a special 3D projector to restore the former historic sites to their original glory. Well the holograms don’t move and talk, they are a 3D impression of what was once there.
Finally, artificial intelligence and intelligent androids are starting to come to fruition. Siri and other digital assistants can learn your preferences and search engines are getting better than ever at finding out what your are actually searching for. However, there is actually new bot on the block called Pepper. He has emotional intelligence and can detect your emotions, as well as display his own.
Which technologies from The Force Awakens do you think we will be seeing 30 years from now?
