There's a lot of really cool tech on TV shows, films and books, like the Holodeck and Transporter from Star Trek, or the Babelfish from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and so much more.
Lightsabers, hoverboards, spaceships that can jump to hyperspace and more. What technology (from movies/ books/ whatever) do you want to see in real life?
My personal pick is the Holodeck and I'm really excited to see Oculus growing and growing into something that was awesome and is now even more amazing.
Hello there! If you're reading this, you probably love science fiction as much as I do. Which are your favourite sci-fi books, films or games? If you love science fiction in any other form, this is the place to let the world know.
I'll start with the films I love the most:
2001: A Space Odyssey - So slow that you could watch this film at 2.5x the speed for the most part. But it is a pure work of art that you must watch. The special effects still don't look dated and that's a massive achievement for a film from 1968 (yes, 46 years ago!).
Stalker - This is a slow, artistic film. The beauty of Stalker lies in its cinmetography. A group of people want to explore an area abandoned after a nuclear disaster, even though there is the threat of radiation poisoning. The film was shot at a place where there was an actual radiation hazard. Small wonder the entire crew passed away less than 10 years after the film was released.
The Matrix - It's a great film that's got something for everyone. The Matrix is a unique blend of philosophy and some crazy action sequences. I've watched this one many times and am yet to tire of it.
