Great Star Trek Technologies We Don’t Want in Real Life
The famous movie, Start Trek have been a source of amazing technologies and there are many online articles celebrating its wonders, but not all are applicable and practical in real life. While smartphones, portable data tablets, holodecks, and universal translators are useful and cool devices, there are Trek technologies that may cause harm instead of goodness to the human race. Let’s try to discuss the great Star Trek technologies but are not suitable and good to use in real life. We will focus on food replicators, synthehol, and transporters.
1. The Amazing Food Replicators. Will you rely on your food to an android cook? How will the food replicator know the taste of the food? Having food machines or food replicators might be a good thing for those who don’t cook, it is a big turn-off for mothers and health and fitness enthusiasts who want healthy and delicious food for their children and loved ones. While the Star Trek universe greatly depend on these food machines, the earth won’t survive without human intervention. The Federation may know that a Tasty Wheat taste, they are also a big bureaucratic organization, cutting corners, which means that the food machines in star Trek utilize the least number of available resources. The world will be so sad not to ever taste a gourmet meal gain, so we must still be grateful because many people are still interested in learning culinary and serve healthy and hearty meals.
2. A big no for Synthehol! While it is good to have an unlimited source of alcohol, we cannot discount the fact that the world has high morbidity and mortality rates because of alcoholism and drunk driving. It does not make any sense having a substance that can degrade the judgment of your crew on a star ship. Despite it is illegal, some Romulan wine still shows up at times. There is no need to research the top 10 wine coolers on the star system, and nobody would care if the stuff is real or not. The conflict is that people drink alcohol not just for the taste but also the effects.
3. Be anywhere fast and easy with transporters. Yes, you can save so much time to go to one place to another using a transporter just at the blink of an eye. Do you want to be one of the crew members of Science Officer Commander Sonak who was unluckily slated to beam aboard immediately after? Despite of cloud technologies, data loss is still a real thing in the digital world. We admit it, the world is scary, so be careful what you wish for.
