Have always been intrigued by these sci fi technology. If they were real, the business applications are immense and you would definitely have something remarkable.

Has anyone tried making science fiction technology real?

1) Hologram Interface like Star Wars, Tony Stark

2) Force Field that blocks out elements

I think it's coming. Automation of Payments & Cryptocurrencies, Governance with Decentralized Autonomous Organizations. Quantum Computing, Life-Extension Bio-Tech and Nano-Tech.

Boost VC focus on making Sci-Fi a reality and Singularity University seem to help develop some cutting-edge tech and breakthrough innovations.

Hologram Interface - Not sure what the Tech & Science behind that is. Do a Deep-Dive and see what you can find.

Force-field that blocks out elements...can you explain that a little more?

I never completed my physics courses, but we pretty much have a starting point for both of those.

1. The holo tech is oooold news:

Basically ionized air.

There was a fake kickstarter a while back too: Holovect: Holographic Vector Display

They've got the right idea, but couldn't execute.

Essentially intersect 2 waves of some sort to produce the light in 3d space. I think this will be the way to go.

2. Magnetic field to affect pretty much any object. You just need to figure out how to get a ridiculous amount of power, while not affecting you and the things around you.

This is the core business of my 9-5 job. Separating Isotopes on a molecular level. Not saying this is impossible, but many many many people have tried and failed to make this a viable process for large scale business applications, never mind for small scale or domestic use. If one could crack this, they could very easily become the richest man to have ever lived. The number of applications would blow your mind would probably be as vital to the health of our planet and people in it, as a limitless green energy source.

Purification of sea water to name one of the potential applications, oil refinement is another, air quality treatment, ozone filtering.

Closest thing I have found is Volumetric Display made by a company Voxon. Although it seems that it still needs to be enclosed in a box. What I was thinking was entirely free floating hologram interface like Tony Stark or have you seen Mass Effect Omnitool.


The closest thing to force fields seems too dangerous for the typical consumer to use because they use plasma as the shield and uses a ton of energy. Force field applications I am thinking about would be creating virtual objects with physical properties to replace physical objects and not dangerous to touch.

More technology I also had in mind was nanotech - specifically nanotech that shapeshift into clothing or anything really.

Wow the Volumetric Display looks really cool. I will look into them a bit more later.

What is the core Value Proposition of Holograms? Projecting Images without the need for a fixed display area? So functionally, sort of a 3-D Portable Projector hope you get what I mean.

Nano-tech - there's

It would be interesting to see how nano-tech could save lives and extend them with autonomous or guided medical assistants. I belief there is ongoing work in this field/application.

This is amazing!

Geometry that is being rendered is sliced up into hundreds of digital horizontal cross sections before being projected synchronously onto a specially designed high speed reciprocating screen. As the photons of light hit the screen, they are diffused and reform a physical cross sectional image at precisely the right place in physical space. Through persistence of vision, the human eye blends hundreds of layers together, and the result is a true three-dimensional (3D) volumetric holographic representation of data that can be viewed in the same way as one would view a real object, from any angle, and without special effects, goggles or glasses.

So there's a screen that goes back and forth really quickly?

It was done with the iPad. Remember TNG from the 80s how they had tablets? Took a few decades, but the tech was finally mature enough to come out with tablets better than the tablets on TNG.

Flying to the moon use to be pure sci-fi until, hey, we finally did it. What we do today will for sure be conceived as magic a few hundred years ago. I want to say 80-90% things in sci-fi are creatable, but some can certainly take more time than others for the technology to be available. And then there are things like lightsabers. We would need some type of future super battery to spit out a hand held plasma creation device controlled by magnetic fields, but plasma would never interact with another form of plasma as if it were a solid like in Star Wars. I could be wrong, but I don't think there is a way to make a plasma a solid being hot as it is.
