    Default What's your favorite science fiction device (that isn't a weapon)?

    The title says it all. Come here and gush over fictional technology, but make sure to explain exactly why you like it. What makes it work? Is it practical? If so, why and how?

    (I think those familiar with me can already guess my answer, scouters are awesome. Even though they NEVER work in DBZ.)

    Any kind of FTL propulsion, it opens up the universe to humanity.

    A close second is the jetpack, because flying.

    I'm not a native english speaker and I'm dyslexic(that doesn't mean I have low IQ quite the opposite actually it means I make a lot of typos).

    So I beg for forgiveness, patience and comprehension.

    I asked my wife, and she instantly held up her i-phone, saying, "This is a Star Trek communicator, a tri-corder, a locater, a mapping device, and they are probably figuring out a way to make it a medical scanner as well."

    But for me, there is no question. Apollo 11. The younger readers will probably think I'm joking, but I'm not. When I watched it take off, and then saw the Lunar Module land on the moon, science fiction came true. I walked outside and looked up at an inhabited world. No other science fiction moment has ever affected me like that.

    Well, being an Aasimov fan, I'd have to say the coolest thing we could have would be a Multivac. The pinnacle of technology is for me the Ultimate Super-AI, with universal-scale Internet included. FTL communication, perfect recording of every event of everything in the universe at the same time... the possibilities are greater than infinite. If I could fuse myself with Multivac, I certainly would too.

    Now that you brought it up, I always thought the coolest thing in DB were the poi-poi capsules. I wouldn't mind having to carry around my PC instead of my smartphone; as long as I can transport it (and so much more) inside by pocket. I would get rid of backpacks and getting the benefit to carry most of my stuff around in the process. That would certainly improve my quality of life by a >9000%.

    PS: If we are talking about colonizing space, I think gravity projectors would present themselves much more useful in the short and long run than FTL travel itself.

    I think I'd have to go for the TARDIS. I used to love the sonic screwdriver as well but it has become so corrupted in nuWho that it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. The TARDIS hasn't fared as poorly, though it has taken a battering.

    Definitely a replicator. Although to be fair conceptually it creates a lot of problems with exactly how the Star Trek universe works. But outside of that in terms of real world utility it's probably the single most significant thing that could ever be invented.

    See, I considered those as well, but the thing that makes scouters a better choice in my opinion is that they fit in perfectly in other settings with minimal adjustment. The capsules simply don't fit in most settings and there's a lot of unanswered questions about them (IE: Where does the stuff go when you've collapsed the capsule, and what would happen if you were inside something when the capsule was collapsed?). Scouters don't have either issue. You could import a scouter to any other science fiction setting regardless of tone with minimal adjustment, which is why I showed a couple scouters moved into a Fallout 4 mod where they still fit in, look great and fill a functional role not too different from their original purpose. (Actually, the scouters are REALLY valuable in that mod, I only use them for two of their four abilities and they are a game changer.)

    Well since he was alive prior to their existence, I would say they definitely count. It's a real world realization of an idea that had only existed in science fiction. There's nothing that would count more than that.

    It depends on how one defines science fiction - the softer it gets, the more ridiculously cool stuff shows up. Here's a scale, with the ends bolded
    Fantasy in Space
    Replicators, and matter energy conversion in general.
    Medical broth (anything involving basically being able to dump people with any medical issue in a tube and have them come out cured).
    Tractor beams.
    Terraforming tools.
    Space elevator.
    Biological prosthetics (nerve splicing, growing limbs from cell cultures, that sort of thing, mostly to replace missing limbs).
    Powered exo skeletons (for medical and industrial purposes, powered armor is basically a weapon).

    In Schlock mercenary, many ships have fabricators- machines capable of generating most varieties of matter using only huge amounts of energy. I've gotta say that those are probably my favorite.

    Indeed. In fact, Maxim 24 of the 70 Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries (from the comic I was just talking about) has a quote related to this:

    Maxim 24: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a big gun.

    The Time Machine from the .G. Wells novella The Time Machine (I'm pretty sure that I enencountered the "Classic Comics" and Pal movie version first).

    I suppose that it really counts as fantasy, but Wells called it "A Scientific Romance" so let's pretend it's science fiction.

    If it makes you feel any better, the future was never behind schedule, it just turned into a different road. We have technologies they never even dreamed of on Lost in Space.

    You've been through a lot of world events it sounds like. You should still see the magic. I'm talking to you on device that's mostly screen and wirelessly connects to the Internet (which completely revolutionized... well, everything). Even though it's commonplace where we live, it's still pretty damned impressive.

    Technically not a space station, since those are, well, stationary. Death Star clearly has a hyperdrive, and at least has enough of a sublight drive to put it in an optimal orbit. I'm loathe to call it a ship, though... how about just "giant laser with a moon-sized building attached?"

    I'm a sucker for virtual reality games that seem to play as sideplots until they enlighten the character to some greater purpose of the narrative. I once thought it was just in Ender's Game, but then I started seeing it be used in other works such as The Three-Body Problem.

    The most amazing thing to me is fusion power. (With a reactor that consumes less energy while running than it generates.)

    It's something we actually know it's possible, we're making steady progress on, and for which there is no good reason why it could never be achived. Yet at the same time the effects are something that science fiction almost never seems to consider. Pretty much all kinds of scarcity in the world are not a lack of the physical stuff, but prohibitively high energy costs to transform it into things we need and transporting them to where they are needed. Energy has always been the limiting factor of what can be done for all of human history.

    With mass produced fusion reactors being everywhere, everything would change. It would be much bigger than steam engines or gun powder, perhaps even bigger than agriculture. The cost of making a fusion reactor can be regarded as being entirely energy. Energy to mine the materials, transport the materials, work the materials, and so on. Once you have one fusion reactor you could produce the energy to make more fusion reactors.

    Of course it can't ignore the limitations of thermodynamics and you still need a fuel, but when the fuel is 75% of all matter in the universe, running out is not going to be an issue.

    It's the most fantastic technology with the most far reaching consequences that would be unimaginable in the long term, but the only case where I see it considered is Star Trek, but it very rarely takes a look at the lives of normal people on Federation worlds.

    Damn straight! Forget hoverboards, I want Mr. Fusion. Gimme a few of those I can make a damn hoverboard. Energy inefficiency effectively doesn't exist anymore; what previously required plutonium now only needs a banana peel, a little beer, the beer can, some egg shells and the carton.

    I have this rant a lot.
