    What sci-fi tech would you want to see today? Can be from a novel, TV show, movie, etc.

    - The Jetson's Food dispenser - press a button and your meal is instantly ready. No waiting. Can select from a massive list of food options. Want sushi, select it from the menu then specify what types and the quantity of each and poof you got your California rolls ready to eat.

    - Robot servants - Kinda like in I Robot before they go crazy. They can walk the dog, do your laundry, make you dinner (if the food dispenser doesn't exist) and clean the house. All they need is an outlet to recharge.

    May think of more later.

    Flying cars...but just for the smart people. And they'll need to have turn signals for 'up' and 'down' as well.

    Of course, teleporters take care of the need for flying cars.

    Also, the three seashells.

    Hell yes! Preferably the Deathscythe Hell for me.
    I'd also like to have a robotic body like the T-1000 from T2.

    That is all I'm asking for. We were promised those in the year 2000 (granted, this was back in the 80's... but I want my flying backpack dammit).

    Futuretech indeed.
