The best thing about the Sci-Fi genre is that it transports us to fantastic places and far-away worlds where we get to meet heroes, warlords, Jedi, fight alien invasions and travel through black holes. However, one of many reasons we love Sci-Fi is the technology. Things like the TARDIS from Doctor Who or the the Stargates are pure fiction but a lot of the futuristic gadgets and tech are being developed or even used at this very moment!
1) Smart contact lenses
Remember how big of a deal was Google Glass a few years ago? Imagine having the same functionality in your lenses! Right now special medical lenses are being developed that will measure the glucose levels in diabetics without making them prick their fingers every few hours.
Bionic limbs, eyes, internal organs… the future is happening right now! These thingamajigs still look big, clumsy and unpolished but give it 20 years and we’ll all be buying new bionic livers and machine oil like they’re auto parts. The cyborgs are coming!
