We've all seen futuristic movies and haven't we wished there was a hoverboard, laser gun, or lightsaber that we can use? You'll be surprised that some of these really do exist.

Many “sci-fi” technologies already exist in some form or are being developed. We’re not saying you’re a year away from beaming up to a starship for a quick cruise over to Mars for your semiweekly Djem So class. Nevertheless, you might recognize the following ten technologies.
10. A Real-Life Adamantium like Wolverine
9. Tricorders (Sort Of) like in Star Trek
8. Exoskeletons You may have seen them in video games and films, sometimes labeled “power suits” or “exosuits.”
7. Stealth Suits.
6. Real-Time Language Translation Devices
5. Cryonics
4. ‘Solid Light’ (Think Lightsabers)
3. Laser Weapons
2. Force Fields
1. Cybernetic Implants

Which of these are you excited to check out for yourself? Can we really use these in our daily lives?

Really?! How come I have never heard of this before?! Real adamantium?! Does it work like the movies?

Cryonics is available but it still hasn't made any significant advancement in how they're suppose to revive you so I don't think it should be on the list because technically, it doesn't work.

They've been showing cryonics on tv and in the movies so I'm pretty sure those exist already. Those look pretty cool actually.

I would love to see an actual force field. It would be interesting to know how they made it and where we can actually use it in real life.

Wow, still don't know why you'd want to freeze a dead body. Will that still be you when they unfreeze it? I get weirder out thinking about it. lol.

Real-time language translation device would be in my wish list in the next few years, when I am ready to travel the world. Right now, I'm still saving up. Hopefully, this gets cheaper in 5 years. It would make traveling to remote places so much easier.

I'm a huge Star Wars fan so the 'solid light' seems really exciting. I can't wait to own one of those.

Not like we can use these everyday. They're impractical.
