Question of the Week

What movie inventions would you like to see in real life?

Scientists have discovered that we are on the verge of being able to create a real-life lightsaber. So naturally, it got us thinking about all the other cool things we'd like to see and use, so this week we want to hear from you, what other movie inventions would you like to see in real life?

Radioactive super power giving spiders.

Though I'd like to point out that lightsabers don't put us ahead of the game really- we should've had them "a long, long time ago."
