Welcome to Humor Nation. Star Wars is awesome, it’s super-cool, one of the greatest movie franchises of all time. We became fans of the galaxy tech we saw in the films, but we usually have to accept that it only exists in fiction. However, what if I told you that’s not the case, some scientists have worked really hard to create technology and gadgets that resemble the stuff we saw in the films.
So Let’s Take A Look At 9 Star Wars Gadgets And Technology Available Now!
Although many car enthusiasts have dreamed of driving cars that fly through the air, none is yet to hit mass production. Nevertheless, several enterprising inventors have produced functional hover crafts. A good example is the M-200G developed by Muller International which can cruise at a top speed of 50 miles per hour hovering at a height of 10 feet off the ground. Luckily this hovercraft is not subject to FAA regulations because it falls under the category of recreation craft. The only downside to owning and flying one is the price tag that ranges from ninety thousand to one hundred twenty-five thousand dollars.
Robots are a common fixture in all Star Wars films. In fact, a report written by the BBC states that all Star Wars movies have featured more than one billion robots. Similar versions of the robots featured in Star Wars movies have become increasingly common in the enterprise and home appliance space especially over the last five years. A good example is the ASIMO humanoid robot that can move around obstacles, climb stairs, lift and move light objects as well as recognize faces and sounds.
3. Heads Up Display
Heads up displays that were once a novelty are common features on fighter jets, helmets worn by fighter jet pilots and even several modern cars. In star wars films heads-up displays are seen in x-wing fighter jets. Currently, car companies including BMW Mercedes, Tesla, GM, and Toyota are working cars that have advanced heads-up displays.
4. Battle Droids
Several companies including Google have produced robots that can function in battlefields. In particular, Google’s ‘Big Dog’, a remotely controlled robot had a trial with several US Army military units where it’s role was carrying luggage for soldiers such as ammunition and military rations.
