Sadly, I still don’t have a phaser. And most of the fantastical gadgets on the Starship Enterprise are way beyond the realm of current scientific reality (and may always be), but some of the science from the TV show have pushed the imaginations of scientists and engineers. For instance, cloaking devices are pretty much a reality at this point. Antimatter is basically plausible, too.

But most of the stuff in this infographic are, sadly, probably hundreds of years into the future if anything. Strangely, it doesn’t mention possibly one of the most awesome Star Trek gadgets: the tablet PC. Star Trek was using thin, elegant touch screens before it was cool. What science fiction do you think could become a reality.
