Certain kinds of science fiction could almost be considered far-out predictions. Star Trek crew members used tablet computers decades ago, and now the tablet computing market looks like it could take over PCs. Certainly, there's a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy for some sci-fi technology, and here are just a few examples.
- Practical fusion is always just 30 years away, but a dilithium-powered Star Trek Enterprise could take just 20 years to build. Okay, we're joking about the dilithium chamber, but there's an engineer who isn't joking about building his own NCC-1701. [url]
- The Make-A-Wish Foundation helped to create a pretty cool Millennium Falcon for a 9-year-old kid. It's obviously not a full-scale model, so no Kessel runs or hyperdrive. [url]
- Browncoats aren't left out of the fun here: a 12-foot long Serenity ship exists in the Universal Archives. Real fans want to know if there's a miniature dead Wash at the helm.... "I am a leaf on the wind - watch how I soar." [url]
