Sci-Fi’s Influence On Technology

Sci-Fi’s Influence On Technology

Science fiction, by definition, is science that isn’t real. But looking beyond the fantastical elements there are some very innovative ideas, a lot of which have had a real influence on modern technology. Here are some examples:

  • Star Trek: The motion Picture predicted the Internet as embodied in the movie by the all-enveloping sentient machine ‘V’Ger’.
  • Ready Player One predicted VR technology and virtual workplaces.
  • Total Recall predicted self-driving cars.
  • iRobot predicted self-driving cars that would allow the driver to take over too.
  • Minority Report predicted interactive augmented reality now being commercialized as wearable pair of glasses.
  • Back to the Future predicted the self-tying shoes.
