Thank you, Star Trek
So, I thought it might be fun to list some former "science fiction" technology that we now use everyday. Cellphones are communicators. Automatic doors are like...automatic doors. The iPad is like the PADD (Personal Access Display Device). Bluetooth is like Uhura's earpiece communicator. They've recently made a device for the visually impaired, called Jordy, named after Geordi La Forge and his VISOR. Virtual reality headsets are a primitive holodeck. Can anyone else think of some others?
