The Wave of the Future (Four Gadgets You Wish You Had)

Get it? Wave? Future? Hahaha! C’mon, work with me here.

I watched a James Bond movie lately and I thought of something. James Bond always has these cool gadgets to help him out, invented by Q. Pen guns, flying cars, rocket guns, everything he needs. And futuristic movies I’ve seen always have cool stuff that people supposedly invented. So I’ve put together my list of futuristic gadgets that I would love to have.

1. Time Machine – Who wouldn’t want a time machine? You can go back in time to see the dinosaurs up close (just not too close)! You could see Rome and Greece in all their past glory. Maybe even see the legendary Spartans, just to compare them to the ones in 300. Or you could use it to go back to yesterday and give your mother a present for the birthday you forgot, jerk. I wouldn’t mind having one, even if it was made out of a DeLorean. Many scientists say that it is truly impossible to travel to the past and the laws of physics only allow travel to the future, but who knows? Mankind always finds a way!

2. Virtual Reality – This already exists in some form, but what I want is full-on perfect virtual reality! Just put on a helmet or glasses and you just think what you want to do, and your virtual self will do it! You can even smell scents and actually feel what you touch in that world! It would be great for the date scene since you get to date without actually being there, or you can talk and hug your loved ones from far away. You can even be the star of your own virtual adventure movie! The possibilities are endless!

3. Teleporter – I think anyone can use this. Why take the bus to work when you can just teleport there? You can even work overseas while still living in your own house! Take your time in the mornings since it’s hard to be late for work if you can get there instantly. You can even take your lunch break in Paris and come back in time for the afternoon meeting! Too bad this may never happen, because there’s always a chance that not all of your body parts arrive at your destination. But like I said, who knows?

4. Electronic Contact Lenses – I saw this in a movie once. You wear contact lenses that display data right in front of you. No more checking your watch for time when all you need to do is look at the digital clock in your vision! You can even have your daily planner displayed there, or even view videos or surf the net! All you have to do is think what you want to see and it’ll pop up.

There you have it. Science just keeps moving forward, and one day all these gadgets may as well be real! Having gadgets makes people lazy though, but we can probably invent auto-exercise machines for that. 😉 How about you? What gadgets would you like to have?

Supermutant Powers! What Would You Choose?

Ok, let’s throw the gloves out if the window. Let’s not pretend to be mature and intellectual. Let’s all just let go of work, of school, of girl problems and of all things stressful in our life. Let’s go back basics, being 10 and carefree! What I’m trying to segway here is that let’s all just sit back and talk about mutants, and superpowers, and super mutant powers! If you could be a super mutant and given a super power, what would it be? As for me, I’ve narrowed it down to 5! I called it ok, so you better not get mine and come up with your own! 😛

Here’s mine

1. Teleporting– The movie Jumper inspired me on this one! I walked out of the theater insanely jealous! Imagine if you could wake up, go for a morning surf in South Africa, stop for lunch in Greece, and spend the night in a luxurious hotel in the Caribbean . That would be the life!

2.Invisibility– Like Sue Storm of the Fantastic 4, the power of invisibility would be something that I could use. I could walk in and out of places unnoticed. I could skip work a little, grab some coffee, maybe a stroll in the park, and no one would be the wiser. Invisibility would aslo come in handy in a fight. No one would be able to see me and I could beat them up.

3. The ability to control time– This power would be convenient for correcting those stupid mistakes, or for when you need that extra minute or hour to get something done. If you could control time, you could make it go back, speed up, slow down and go forward to your convenience!

4. This power I wanna call Brilliant Brain– If I had supreme intelligence, I’d be able to figure my way out of any dilemma I managed to land in the first place! I’d think up ways to cure Aids, Cancer and even the common cold! I will come up with solutions to war and poverty! Everybody will love me, especially the ladies! 😀

5. Lastly, I would want to be able to read another person’s mind! Then I’d find out what you actually think of me and my shirt! I would know what my friends and my picky mom really want for Christmas and Birthdays. That would sure save me on shopping time and effort! Again, everybody would love me (And isn’t that always the end goal that superheroes aim for?!)

I don’t know what’s better than getting any of these superpowers, maybe if I managed to get them all! That’d be sweet! What are your top picks for superpowers? I’d like to see you top mine! We could have a super battle!!! The possibilities are endless…
