You can’t talk Star Trek without mentioning the wonderful future technologies that enable the Enterprise crew to survive their strange adventures every week. It’s even harder not to bring up the number of “future” 24th century tech predicted by the show that have actually become part of our daily lives. Cell phones for example.
There’s a new Star Trek movie coming out today and it got me thinking – what has Star Trek contributed to the modern-day universe? Could it be possible we owe some modern day conveniences to this long-running series of fictional TV shows and movies?
Star Trek is set to release today and I couldn’t be more excited! Sure, I’m thrilled that the new movie is coming out soon, but what’s even more exciting is all the fancy merchandise that gets released to help promote the movie itself. You’ll see tons of blogs about the movie itself, but I think I’ll change things up a bit by focusing on all the nifty gizmos that would make any Trekkie jump for joy.
